Customer Review

on September 7, 2002
Any Internet browser, even those with only half an ear, or only half a finger, or half a day's pay in the bank, should add this CD to their shopping cart. Better still, select its companion volume as well, and you'll have the complete organ works of Jehan Alain (1911-1940). Here is music that repays repeated listening. You'll not find organ music that is mainly bombast, and special effects; you'll find the quieter, more subtle potentialities of a large pipe organ used in music that is full of intriguing harmonies and gentle colourings.
Renowned organist Marie-Claire Alain has written, without a trace of sentimentality, of the life of her eldest brother, and of helping, as a small child, to gather up his effects including pages of music from the site where he was killed during the German invasion of France in May 1940. Her own recordings of his organ works will always carry a special authority, but a worthy and welcome alternative is now available in these modestly priced and very well recorded CDs made by Eric Lebrun playing on the Cavaille-Coll Organ on the Church of Sainte-Antoine des Quinze-Vingts, Paris.
