Fanfare by Belgian composer Jacques-Nicolas Lemmens, arranged for flute choir by Matt Johnston. Jacques-Nicolas Lemmens (1823—1881) is a composer unfamiliar to most, unless you happen to be either an organist, or a Belgian (or a Belgian organist!). At the age of 26, he was appointed organ teacher at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels with two of his most accomplished students being Alexandre Guilmant and Charles-Marie Widor. In 1879 he founded a school for church music in Mechelen, Belgium, which would later bear his name upon moving to Leuven in 1968. The Lemmensinstituut has since broadened its curriculum beyond church music and is a prominent, award-winning music conservatory. This Fanfare of Lemmens is an organ piece popular to play as a postlude or as a wedding recessional.
Additionally, this arrangement is compatible with the version for Clarinet Choir, also available at ALRY Publications.
