Mignan, Pastorale
Édouard Mignan (1884-1969) grew up in Orléans, where he was appointed organist of St. Paterne's Church at the age of 14. After studying with Guilmant and Vierne he succeeded Nadia Boulanger as assistant and then Henri Dallier as organist of the Church of the Madeleine in Paris. By an odd coincidence the current organist of the Church of the Madeleine, François-Henri Houbart, also grew up in Orléans, and was also appointed organist of St. Paterne's Church in Orléans at the age of 14.
