    A Fav organ composer on some Fav organs

    Dear Sweet Horn, thank you for pointing the way towards Heaven.

    I imagine you have the complete 12-CD Orgue Mystique set by Delvallée. Back in the 1990s, I had bought the very first issue of that set, which was then released as four successive and separate installments, each being a "double-decker" jewel-case containing 3 CDs (Noël at Orléans in 1995, Pâques at St-Ouen in 1996, Pentecôte in St-Sernin in 1997 and at the Dalbade in 1999). Takes up a lot of shelf space—much more than the current issue in a "miniaturized LP box presentation". But there is noooo way that set is ever going to make room in my shelf for anything else!

    Aloha Blessed acc,

    Yes sir, I have the 12-Cd box. Yes, I do gripe just a smidgeon that the whole L'Orgue Mystique should have been recorded at St. Ouen...And for that matter, all the Tournemire organ oeuvre

    As I have mentioned before, Bach and Tournemire's organ oeuvre are the, imho, pinnacle of organ achievement. May God forgive me that I view Bach and Tournemire's organ oeuvre interchangeably as the *Old Testament and New Testament* of organ music.

    Humbly,

    CD

    Aloha Aristide,

    You indeed may - Oh the world would be so much poorer if Bach and Tournemire had never graced this world.

    Cheerio,

    There was a project to that effect back in 1979 (i.e. the 40th anniversary of Tournemire's death), to be co-sponsored by several (French speaking) public radio houses: France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Canada.

    Alas, there was a big local obstacle in Rouen that prevented the project from being carried out.
