Torsten Nilsson was born in 1920 in Höör and died in 1999 in Stockholm. He studied at The Royal College of Music in Stockholm 1938–1942. Between 1943 and 1953 he was an organist in Köping, and from 1953 in Saint Mary´s Church, Helsingborg. The arrival of the new Marcussen Organ in 1959 was followed by intense international contacts, among them Anton Heiller, with whom Torsten Nilsson studied composition in 1961 and 1965 (in Vienna). In 1962 he left Helsingborg to take up the post as choir director (kantor) in the Oscar´s Church in Stockholm. Due to disagreements with the church council he left this post already in 1979 but continued as the director of the Oscar´s Motet Choir until 1984. He also taught liturgical chant at the Uppsala University (1966–1970) and at the Theological Institute of Stockholm (1964–1970).
