Notes & Reviews:

Franck's rarely recorded Grand Piece Ssymphonique is recorded here for the first time on a British organ. Ian Tracey is well established as one of the leading exponents of French organ music. He studied in Paris with Isoir, and received many lessons from Langlais, a pupil and successor of Franck at St. Clotilde. He comments that the Willis organ is very French in its constitution; it has forty-seven reeds which, combined with its generous acoustic, makes it very suitable for the performance of this type of repertoire.

Gramophone Magazine
This is a wonderfully wholesome meal of somewhat neglected organ music composed by five of the most important French mâitres. The recording quality is absolutely first-rate and the playing magisterial and highly persuasive. Strongly recommended.
