The choral Le don des larmes by the Belgian organist and composer Benoit Mernier is conceived as a symphonic work for a great organ of the Cavaille-Coll type. The "Chorale" is more a chaconne than a Lutheran chorale and it appears in various forms in the manner of an improvisation, repeatedly changing. The subtitle Le don des larmes (the gift of tears) derives from the mystical Catholic tradition which considers crying to be a boon. A finely worked-out, striking piece for organ, marked by a delight in rich and varied sounds.
