Notes & Reviews:

In spite of Joseph Jongen's admiration for Debussy and Ravel - their rich tone colors and daring harmonies strongly appealed to him - his musical style continued that of the school of César Franck. All of his compositions are suffused with warm, glowing intensity, alternately enthusiastic and meditative, reflective and exuberant, playful and tender, and always fascinating.

In spite of Joseph Jongen's admiration for Debussy and Ravel - their rich tone colors and daring harmonies strongly appealed to him - his musical style continued that of the school of César Franck. All of his compositions are suffused with warm, glowing intensity, alternately enthusiastic and meditative, reflective and exuberant, playful and tender, and always fascinating. Jongen is and remains a dyed-in-the-wool late romanticist: honest, open, and passionate. However, his rich and subtle orchestral colors betray both the influence of impressionism and the organist's craft.
