Leandre Arthur du Mouchel (1841-1915) was born in Canada, traveled briefly in Europe, and spent most of his life in the
United States. In 1872, he became organist of St Paul’s Church, Oswego, New York; in 1876, he began at the Cathedral of the Immaculate
Conception in Albany, which is listed in the music as “Org. de la Cathédrale d’Albany, N.Y.,” where he served until
his death. DuMouchel’s recessional was the last entry in Oliver Ditson’s series, “A Selection of Pieces Performed at the
Inauguration of the Great Organ” (in the Boston Music Hall). It is rhythmic throughout and designed to encourage the congregation to
leave the sanctuary. Moderately easy.
