Notes & Reviews:

A prolific composer of orchestral, choral and organ works, Seth Bingham studied under, among others, Horatio Parker, Vincent d'Indy, Alexandre Guilmant and Charles-Marie Widor, which should give the uninitiated some idea of his style! Indeed, the organ works of Bingham represent a unique intersection between the French symphonic style and an American outlook and sensibility. His life-long love of all things French (not least his wife, Blanche Guy, whom he met and married in France) and the above-mentioned composers infused much of his music with the harmonies, textures, forms, and registration choices that were typical of French composers like Vierne, Dupre and Langlais. Yet there is an unmistakably American quality to much of his music as well the occasional folk-like theme, jazz-influenced harmonies and, in his later music, a certain angularity and dissonance that was part of the mid-century American sound. The music chosen for this first volume of his music generally shows more of the French influence, but does incorporate styles from other countries and other times, resulting in a sound that is unique and charming.
