    Yon
    Pietro Yon was born in 1886, in Settimo-Vittone, Italy. He was an Italian organist and composer. Yon studied at the Conservatories of Milan and Turin. In 1904, he entered the Academy of Saint Cecilia in Rome to study organ with Renzi, piano with Sgambati and composition with de Sanctis. For two years he served as deputy organist at the Vatican and the royal church in Rome. From 1907 he was organist and choirmaster of the church of St. Francis Xavier in New York. He won a wide reputation as a concert organist. In 1921 he was made honorary organist of the Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican.

    His compositions include a Concerto Gregoriano for organ and orchestra, masses, choral music, many organ pieces, piano pieces and songs. A popular choral work at Christmas is Yon's Gesu, Bambino. He died November 22, 1943 in Huntington, Long Island, NY.
