Notes & Reviews:
Alongside the Three Pieces, the Six Pieces, and the Three Chorales that constitute the body of Franck's organ works, there is also an entire series of organ works dating from Franck's youth. These pieces, the majority of which exist only in manuscript, were published by Franck's son after the composer's death. The works, often small in scale and clearly intended for organists to use during services, form an impressive collection. Even though the influences of his teachers and models are clearly heard, a fair proportion of these works already bear the stamp of the mature composer and pater seraphicus. Joris Verdin has recorded these works on the organ of the cathedral of St. Omer, one of the oldest organs by Cavaillé-Coll still existent.
