Works and editions by Jacquemin, Camille (1899-1947)
Camille Jacquemin was born in Hanalzy in Wallonia in 1899. He took over the first organ position at the age of twelve. He first became a priest and then studied organ and composition in Paris, among others with Louis Vierne and Vincent d’Indy. He returned to Belgium to become music director at the Floreffe seminary, where he was often visited by numerous well-known contemporaries such as Charles Tournemire and Joseph Bonnet. He died in 1947 at the age of 47.
Jacquemin left numerous compositions, especially sacred vocal music and organ works. They are now being reprinted and newly edited. They show a composer whose works are in no way inferior to a Charles Tournemire in formal sophistication and Louis Vierne in color harmony.
