Notes & Reviews:

Vincent Boucher writes, "One day, the world will rediscover Tournemire.' This prophetic statement by Olivier Messiaen exactly sums up my original motivation for recording the complete organ works by Charles Tournemire: to make known one of the last great composers who remains to this day largely and unjustly unrecognized. To undertake this project is to face an unsuspected and gigantic quantity of music: the 253 pieces of L'Orgue Mystique, the Symphonies, the poems, the collections...It is also to find oneself in the presence of music that is innovative, mystical and poetic."

The Toronto Star
Boucher could not possibly play these works with any more vigour and variety, distilling every possible colour from the organ’s 15 ranks of pipes
