Notes & Reviews:

The fifth in Signum's series of Charles-Marie Widor's Organ Symphonies, performed by Joseph Nolan on the magnificent Cavaillé-Coll organ of L'église de la Madeleine, Paris. Widor (1844-1937) was born to the organ, his Lyonnaise kinsfolk being organ-builders. He showed early talent for the instrument, and for decades embodied its might and splendor across the Gallic domain - his 'Organ Symphonies' were genre-defining in their influence. "... the Widor Organ cycle of the decade" - Musicweb Int'l

The fifth volume in Signum's series of Charles-Marie Widor's Organ Symphonies, performed by Joseph Nolan on the magnificent Cavaille´-Coll organs of La Madeleine, Paris and Saint-Sernin, Toulouse. Bridging the generations from Mendelssohn to Messiaen, Empire to Republic, Widor was born to the organ. His Lyonnaise kinsfolk were organ-builders, he showed early talent for the instrument, and for decades was the embodiment of its might and splendour across the Gallic domain - his 'Organ Symphonies' were genre-defining in their influence.
