Bernard Coudurier plays at the Madeleine Church in Besanšon, France, where Claude-Ignace Callinet built a 3m organ in 1850 that many consider his masterpiece. Now restored and containing 49 stops, the instrument represents the transitional style between the classical organ of the 17th and 18th centuries, and the symphonic organ built by his contemporary Aristide CavaillÚ-Coll. Included are a conventional CD and another in DTS Surround Sound for those equipped to play it.
