    Marcel Dupré (1886-1971) was one of the giants of the organ world in the 20th century. Famed as a virtuosic performer of the standard repertoire, he was as widely admired for his brilliant improvisations. Dupré’s compositions number in the dozens (many of them beginning life as improvisations, then written down later). Today’s organ prelude is taken from a set of pieces based on antiphons for the Magnificat (“How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights” – from Song of Solomon).
      Soorjo Alexander William Langobard Oliphant Chuckerbutty (1884–1960) (aka Wilson Oliphant) was an English composer and an organist of Anglo-Indian descent who played in both cinemas and churches. He was a grandson of Surgeon-major Goodeve Chuckerbutty and a nephew by marriage of Sir Ganendra Roy, Director of Posts and Telegraphs in India; his maternal grandfather was journalist William Oliphant. Little known as a composer (except for his piece
        "Pæan" which has entered the standard repertoire), Chuckerbutty wrote mainly for organ. He began playing the piano at six, and was composing by age 14. His careers in church and cinema occurred simultaneously. Quentin MacLean, (the great Canadian theatre organist and organist at Holy Rosary Church on St. Clair West) called him "the only organist I know who combines whole-time cinema work with whole-time church work and makes a job of both”.
