Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Played with virtuosity and excellent presence[…] Luc Beauséjour brings vitality and plenitude to an attractive program.” -- DIAPASON, France

“…he has proven time and time again that he is a true poet of historical keyboard instrument, and his latest recording is no exception[…] All this great music is beautifully set off not only by Beauséjour’s playing, but by the wonderfully quirky, spacious-sounding Wolff organ at the University of Toronto Knox College, where the recording was made.” -- HOUR, Montréal, Canada
