Notes & Reviews:

In between improvisation and the relatively precise performance notation found in the early seventeenth century was the musical arrangement. Composers of the time had no compunction about using someone else's thematic material; this was seen as a tribute. Dieterich Buxtehude, like many of his contemporaries, assigned the cornett an important role in his concertante vocal music. For this album, William Dongois has selected some of Buxtehude's sonatas for violin, viol and continuo and adapted them for cornett, sackbut and concertante organ.

Early Music Review, October 2014
Translated with marvellous effect ... delivered with astonishing flexibility by the players, with the result being entirely convincing. It is hard now to imagine them having anything like the same impact in any other rendition ... a high achievement, being a perfectly balance confluence of the best of instrument building, composition, musical vision, technique and recording skills.

MusicWeb International, 6th June 2014
These are the kinds of performances in which you can lose yourself, forget time, and emerge refreshed and stimulated. Expressive musicianship is combined with the utmost clarity, allowing Buxtehude's remarkable chamber music to glow and flourish.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The rest of the works are organ solos: a Prelude in G minor, a Fugue in C, and three studies on the chorale 'Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren'. These works give organist Clerc ample opportunity to show the rich spectrum of tone colors available on the Felsberg organ of St Paul's in Lausanne, Switzerland. Built in 1986, it is in the style of 17th-Century Arp Schnitger organs. Some of its voices are so vivid and unusual that they made me wonder if other musicians were participating.
