American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Symphony 8 is the longest of Widor's ten organ symphonies. It was published with 5, 6, and 7 as Opus 42 in 1887. In that first appearance it had seven movements. The Three New Pieces, Opus 87 (1934) were the last of Widor's published organ works. He dedicated them to three of his American colleagues: Albert Riemenschneider, Charlotte Lockwood, and Frederick Mayer. Ledroit is organist of AngoulOme Cathedral and organ professor at the conservatory. His other recordings for Skarbo include works by Bonnet, Langlais, DuruflT, and his own Mass for a New Century.
