Notes & Reviews:

In the year following the 30th anniversary of Nadia Boulanger's death, this recording renders homage to one of the great master teachers of musical art of the 20th century and includes works (primarily for organ) by Nadia, her sister Lili and some of Boulanger's many students.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Lindwall is a Swedish musician who studied with Toren, Lebrun, Pincemaille, and Mallie. He also worked with Rolande Falcinelli for eight years. He is currently titulaire at the same Saint-Esprit church. The first 13 selections are performed in La Madeleine on the 4- 85 CavaillT-Coll (1846, Dargassies 2002); the remaining four - called bonus tracks - are played on the 2-24 Gloton-Debierre (1934, Cicchero 1985) in Saint-Esprit. This organ is only slightly larger than it was when Demessieux played there. The clarity of the engineering is excellent.
