Notes & Reviews:

Sacred music regulates a cathedral's life, and in its 850 years of history Notre-Dame de Paris has a long tradition of this music, particularly with its renowned great organs. One of the most notable organists of our time and current holder of the extremely prestigious post of titular organist of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, Olivier Latry pays tribute to some of his predecessors over the last three centuries, since the modernization of the organs: Daquin, Balbastre, Beauvarlet-Charpentier, Vierne, Cochereau, and more are celebrated.

MusicWeb International, 5th August 2013
This kind of compilation needs to have a good raison d'Otre to tease my interest, and Olivier Latry's Trois siFcles d'orgue has just that...This programme is a fine souvenir of one of the world's greatest organs played by one of today's best organists. The programme is both satisfying in its own right as well as an invitation to explore further, and with a very fine recording it's also a sonic treat.

International Record Review, September 2013
Latry is a phenomenal interpreter of Messiaen and he creates something of the same sound-world here and in the Preludes of Jean-Pierre Leguay, which, with their irregular rhythms, isolated monodies and birdsong-like flourishes, among other similarities, suit this organ perfectly.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
One of the most fascinating pieces here is Cochereau's 'Bolero on a Theme of Charles Racquet' for organ and percussion. The work pays tribute to one of Cochereau's predecessors (appointed in 1618). It originated as an improvisation in 1973 that was later transcribed by his son, Jean-Marc Cochereau. Ravel is the almost inevitable point of departure. The snare drum plays Ravel's Bolero rhythm from the beginning to the end of the piece. Cymbal crashes are heard at the climax. There is a gradual decrescendo from the middle to the end so that it concludes as quietly as it began. Latry is clearly one of the brightest stars in the current organ world.
