Albert Pérílhou (2 April 1846 – 28 August 1936) was a French composer, organist, and pianist.
Born in Dauzaman, in Aričge, on 2 April 1846, he was son of an organist of Pézenas and was formed as an organist by Saint-Saëns, at the Niedermeyer school.
After some time passed as an organist and a piano teacher in Saint-Étienne, he became professor of piano at the Conservatoire de Lyon (1883). Called in Paris in 1888 as an artistic advisor of maison Erard, he became organist of Saint-Séverin (1889) at the new instrument rebuilt by John Abbey, and then organist in Saint-Eustache in 1905 and 1906.
