The « Christmas music for organ » keep a special place in the history of classical French organ music : famous for more than a century, this musical genre was mostly illustrated by the works of the composers present in this record. Through the ear first, but also by heart that aimed these pieces of music which develop or more often vary popular melodies well known, remaining in our memories until our days, renewing constantly the interest by using contrasting timbres, rhythms very close to the “terroir”, and an instrumental style often very brilliant, elegant and transparent. For many of them of secular origin (the words testify), picturesque, decorative or intimate and candid, these music evoke the “Holly News”, the Nativity and its characters and the Clarity of the Christmas Eve, with great hope.
