Notes and Editorial Reviews

Canadian organist Vincent Boucher continues his cycle of the organ music of Charles Tournemire (1870-1939) with volume 2 devoted to the Nativity. “To undertake this recording project is to face an unsuspected and gigantic quantity of music: 253 pieces of L’Orgue mystique, the symphonies, the poems, the collections... It is also to find one self in the presence of music that is innovative, mystical and poetic,” says Vincent Boucher.
