This project page is created to gather Geni profiles of persons who worked as (professional) church musicians in Finland, mostly titled cantors (kanttori in Finnish) or cantor-organists (kanttori-urkuri). For the cantors of the Orthodox Church of Finland, please see also Suomalainen ja karjalainen ortodoksinen papisto ja kanttorit sekä muu kirkon ja luostarien henkilöstö project.

For persons who worked as lukkari (klockare in Swedish) there is a separate Geni project, namely Suomen lukkarit - Finlands klockare.

A list of church musicians in Finnish towns through circa 1850 is collected by Professor Fabian Dahlström: Stadtmusikanten, Organisten und Kantoren im Ostseeraum bis ca. 1850. For 19th and 20th centuries, please see Suomen kirkon kanttorien ja urkurien matrikkeli, by Hannes Haapio (Helsinki: Suomen kirkon kanttori-urkuriyhdistys, 1929), Suomen ev.-luth. kirkon kanttori-urkurien matrikkeli/Matrikel över Finlands ev.-luth. kyrkas kantor-organister, edited by Edvard Inkinen, Paavo Salmi, and Harry Berghem ([Helsinki], 1957), Suomen teologit ja kirkkomuusikot/Finlands teologer och kyrkomusiker, edited by Matti Paarma and others (Hämeenlinna: Karisto, 1974), and other sources.

Hankkeen tarkoituksena on koota yhteen Geniin tallennetut henkilöt, jotka ovat toimineet Suomessa kanttoreina tai kanttori-urkureina.


Suomen ortodoksisen kirkon kanttoreina toimivien profiilit voi vastaavasti linkittää erilliseen Suomalainen ja karjalainen ortodoksinen papisto ja kanttorit sekä muu kirkon ja luostarien henkilöstö -hankkeeseen.

Myös lukkareita varten on Genissä erillinen hanke, Suomen lukkarit - Finlands klockare.
