Notes & Reviews:

Discovered in the seventies, The Seven Words of Christ on the Cross is one of Cesar Franck's masterworks. It is recorded by one of the best French choirs with an unusual but pertinent instrumentation for piano and harmonium that Franck used to write his famous Prelude, Fugue and Variations. The other works on the recording include sacred pieces by Franck and Faure.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Two Franck pieces are here besides the 7 Last Words: an Ave Maria and 'Domine non Secundum'. The four short Fauré pieces are 'Ave Verum', 'Maria Mater Gratiae', 'Tantum Ergo', and the well-known 'Cantique Jean Racine'. Michel Corboz produces more life in his recording of the 7 Last Words, coupled with the Gounod setting of the same text. He uses a pleasant-sounding organ plus cello and harp.
