Many French organists of the past constitute a brotherhood that was bound together by the ties of a superb musical education and experience gained from studying together and competing with each other during their student years. They received their education from their nation's greatest teachers, and went on to make names for themselves that have endured since the 1800's through the beautiful organ works represented in this collection. Includes: Adagio in C Minor (Louis Vierne) * Allegretto (Louis Vierne) * Andante Sostenuto, from Gothic Symphony (Charles M. Widor) * Carillon-Sortie (Henri Mulet) * Communion (Louis Vierne) * Grand Chorus Dialogue (Eugene Gigout) * Meditation (Gabriel Dupont) * Meditation Religieuse (Henri Mulet) * Prayer (Rene Vierne) * Toccata (Eugene Gigout).

  • June 16, 2012 Buy it.

    This has been a STAPLE of my library for some time. I have used the music in here for many worship services and even some concerts. It's a great collection that intermediate players can use and continue to use when they mature into advanced musicians. Just buy it you...

    will be VERY happy you own this collection and thankful it was brought back into print.
