Michael Guimont › Tunes

Short Name: Michael Guimont
Full Name: Guimont, Michel, 1950-
Birth Year: 1950

Michel Guimont has expanded GIA's international reputation. A composer who is native to Quebec, his music has been available to the church of the United States since 1991 when GIA published his "Glorify the Lord," a trilingual setting (French, Spanish, English) for cantor, assembly, guitar, piano, organ, and brass. From that first appearance, there are now twelve items of Monsieur Guimont in the GIA catalog. Presently he is the director of music at the Roman Catholic cathedral in Ottawa as well as a resource musician for the Roman Catholic diocese of Montreal. He holds two baccalaureate degrees: one in psychology from Concordia University and one in composition from Universite de Montreal. It was at this latter school that he received a masters of music in composition in 1987. Important national recognition was given to him in 1992 when he was the co-music editor of the Missal put out by the Conference of Canadian Catholic Bishops in Ottawa.
With such impressive credentials attached to his vita, it would be a mistake to consider him academic and standoffish. The opposite is true. He is friendly with just the right amount of charm--never overly effusive, but always engaging. His music reflects that personality.
