« Christmas music for great organ » by Georges Delvallée, Maroilles historical organ.
(Pieces from Louis-Claude Daquin, Nicolas Lebègue, Jean-François Dandrieu, Claude Balbastre, Michel Corrette, Antoine Dornel)
Organ “Noëls” occupy a special place in the history of classical French organ music: celebrated for more than a century, this musical genre has been illustrated mainly by the works of the composers present in this disc. It is to the ear first, but also to the heart that these musics are addressed which develop or more often vary popular melodies very known, remained in our memories until our days, renewing constantly the interest by the use of contrasting timbres, rhythms very close to the “terroir”, and by an instrumental writing 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 “Good News”, the Nativity and its characters and the Clarity of the Christmas Eve, all bathed hope.
