Louis James Alfred Lefébure-Wely (18171869) was a French organist and composer. He played a major role in the development of the French symphonic organ style and was a close friend of the organ builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, inaugurating many new Cavaillé-Coll organs. He was organist at Saint-Roche (18411846), at the Église de la Madeleine (18461858), and at Saint-Sulpice (18631869). Lefébure-Wely was born and died in Paris and is buried in the Père Lachaise cemetery there.
