Notes and Editorial Reviews

The fifth in Signum’s series of Charles-Marie Widor’s Organ Symphonies, performed by Joseph Nolan on the magnificent Cavaillé-Coll organ of L’église de la Madeleine, Paris. Widor (1844-1937) was born to the organ, his Lyonnaise kinsfolk being organ-builders. He showed early talent for the instrument, and for decades embodied its might and splendor across the Gallic domain – his ‘Organ Symphonies’ were genre-defining in their influence. “…the Widor Organ cycle of the decade” - Musicweb Int’l The fifth in Signum’s series of Charles-Marie Widor’s Organ Symphonies, performed by Joseph Nolan on the magnificent Cavaillé-Coll organ of L’église de la Madeleine, Paris.
