Kayser, Leif

(13 June 1919, Copenhagen – 15 June 2001, Mindeord)
   Chaplain and organist at St. Ansgar (1949–1964), possibly the most prolific Danish composer of organ music in the 20th century, he wrote primarily sacred music after he became a Roman Catholic priest (1949). His Christmas oratorio, Te Deum, several masses, and numerous motets are written in a conservative style in-fluenced by Gregorian chant. Other more modernist works include {}Three Psalms (1952), the Masses Op.10 and Op.15 (1952, 1954), and Stabat Mater (1970).
