Description: The massive Orgue mystique project which was Tournemire’s life’s work has occupied most of the recordings his organ music. Alongside it, however, he composed many other suites and standalone pieces throughout his career, ranging from the brilliant Sortie Op.2 to the more ruminative pleasures of the Fioretti Op.60 (based on the sayings of St Francis of Assisi) and extended meditations on the “Seven Last Words”. 4 CDs. Tjeerd van Der Ploeg (organs of St. Pierre, Douai, Cambrai Cathedral and Notre Dame d’Auteuil, Paris).
