Notes & Reviews:

This CD celebrates the great Walcker organ restoration at the Eglise Notre-Dame de La Cambre (Brussels). Organist François Houtart's release features 19th and 20th c. Belgian organ repertoire. Jacques - Nicolas Lemmens was a central Belgium Bach figure in his day. Alphons Mailly takes his place perfectly within the symphonic organist tradition of the 19th c. Joseph Jongen, a prodigious musician, left behind an impressive and resonate catalogue. Paul de Maleingreau was intensely interested in early music; his suite is a work of subtle formality inspired by symbolism.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Houtart plays an EF Walcker organ in the Abbey of La Cambre, Brussels. It was inaugurated in 1931 by the Belgian organist Flor Peeters and restored by Schumacher in 2007. The organ is well recorded and clearly heard in a resonant room.
