Notes & Reviews:

Widely regarded as the culmination of French Romanticism on the organ, Charles-Marie Widor's Symphonies include some of the most well-known works in the modern organ repertoire, among them the famous Toccata from the Symphony No. 5. Originally written for the magnificent organ of St. Sulpice in Paris, Widor called these works Symphonies to underline the array of orchestral timbres offered by the new French organs of the time. This recording showcases the superb John Grew, a leading figure among Canadian organists, performing on the 1914 Casavant Organ in Montreal's Tres-Saint-Nom-de-Jesus Church.
