Notes & Reviews:

Tournemire's revelatory improvisations and interpretations link his master Cesar Franck to Messiaen. A profound and volatile mystic, his avant-garde experimentation emerges from plainchant and modes. These rare discs document the only surviving sounds of the organ Franck played on for thirty-one years before it was rebuilt in 1933.

"This is a marvelous reissue, with all the benefits of the latest high-tech remastering." - Choir and Organ. "We never thought it would happen in our lifetime, but here they are. You can hear everything from intimate pipe voicing on soft selections to feet on the pedals, stop changes, and action noise. Organists will now want to hear these historic recordings as soon and as often as possible." - Rollin Smith, The American Organist
