Notes & Reviews:

Notes in French only. Belgian organist Marie Ducrot performs a program of music by French composers. She was the organist at the Laon Cathedral until 2000.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
What is new is the chance to hear a superb organist who has remained quite unknown. Marie Augustine Ducrot (1919-2001) was born in Belgium. Before she reached her teen years she was playing the choir organ in Laon Cathedral. She studied piano with Cortot and organ with Langlais, and stayed at Laon Cathedral as choir organist (1930-1966) until she became organist (1966-2000). She attained titulaire status on both instruments and gained religious and academic recognition.
