Notes and Editorial Reviews

A fine example of French organ building of the classical period, the historic organ of Pyratanée National de la Flèche demonstrates its great versatility in this programme presenting a wide variety of works exploring all its rich possibilities. Instrumental and vocal pieces, religious and secular styles, original works and adaptations, art music and variations on popular songs trace the ecclectic career of the 'king of instruments' from the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment.
