Notes & Reviews:
Celebrating Christmas with organ music is typically French. In the works of French composers, the organ has shown itself to be a marvelous "storyteller," capable of enchanting listeners as effectively as the best of narrators. By virtue of the brilliance and profusion of his variations on Christmas tunes, works by the aptly named Henri Carol have long been a favorite for all fans of holiday organ music. On this specially priced reissue from Ligia, Olivier Vernet offers a fine selection of Carol's output.
