Gerard Brooks plays Organ Favorites at St. Ouen, Rouen
The treasured Cavaillé-Coll organ of St. Ouen was inaugurated in 1890 by Widor, who called it “a Michelangelo of an organ.” Today the organ stands unaltered and is ideally suited to the selections on this CD, each of them a well-known example of French romanticism.
