The fifth volume of this well-established Urtext edition includes the "Dix Pieces" and the "Fantasietta" with variations on a Provencal theme, which are published for the first time since the first printed edition.
The "Dix Pieces" have a clear formal structure, and, like many other works by Dubois, who was organist at the Paris church of La Madeleine, reflect the composer's desire to create works which could be performed equally well in church services or the concert hall.
As with the previously published volumes, this edition includes facsimiles, a critical commentary with a full listing of the sources as well as a detailed foreword which contains a biography of the composer and sheds light on questions relating to the instrument and performance practice.
