F.P.G. Laloux
Fernand (Pierre G.) Laloux (27/11/1901 - 1970), an English composer (from Belgian descent) of church music and former distinguished Director of Music at Farm Street Jesuit Church. He fled together with his parents to England in 1914 and stayed there. He was choir conductor of 'The Sacred Heart Church of Wimbledoní. His music is French in flavour, owing much to the influence of Ravel, and will provide choirs with interesting new material for many different liturgical occasions. Several of his pieces have been in regular use at the London Oratory since the 1980s. He died in Wandsworth, London, England.
