Notes and Editorial Reviews

The vast group of works by Luigi De Grassi comprises masses, psalms, motets, chants etc., either accompanied by the organ or a cappella, for all kinds of vocal ensembles and clearly aimed to be sung during religious ceremonies. A great number of compositions for solo organ testify his work as organist. The Sonatas recorded on this CD are some of the most interesting and ambitious creations for organ by this master composer from Grado. The six Sonatas are quite similar, in their style and way of writing, to the parts for organ of De Grassi’s compositions for vocal ensembles. They can be situated in the frame of the composing style for organ which was typical for the 19th century, used at the music chapel of Cividale, a place exposed to the Read more influence of the flourishing musical scene that surrounded it.

 Good Sound, Good Playing -- But Not My Style August 16, 2013 By Wil L W. (Richwood, TX) See All My Reviews "This CD has great recorded sound, organ selection, and playing, but the carnival-like compositions simply do not appeal to me. It would have been nice to have had sound samples before purchase. Perhaps persons who like the Gallant style would be more pleased than I am with these works." Report Abuse
