Louis LAVOYE (Liège, 13th August 1877 - Liège, 29th July 1975) studied at the Royal Conservatory of Liège and from 1908 to 1942 was professor at the same institution.

He was a pupil of the famous organ-player Charles-Marie Widor and he himself gave numerous recitals. In 1907 he became founding member of the “Société musicologique de Liège”. He wrote several theoretical studies on music amongst them the well-known “Traîté d’harmonie” and “Précis de contrepoint”.

From 1922 to 1973 he was music-critic for the journal “La Meuse”.

As a composer he is a typical product of the turn of the century with slight predilection for the French romantic school.
