Product Description

Marie Thérèse Jehan plays the acclaimed 1734 Clicquot organ at the Nantes Cathedral on this recording of works by Augustin Barié. Barié was a pupil of Louis Vierne, following his early organ studies at the National Institute for the Blind in Paris. He was the organist at Saint-Germain-des-Pres and an extremely gifted improviser. Jehan’s performance brings these works to sparkling life.

“In this somber soul burned an ardent flame…Audacious harmony, rich polyphony, elegance of design, poetry of detail were his sovereign qualities.”
– Louis Vierne

“Of a more profound nature and richer polyphony, the cyclic Symphony remains one of the summits of French organ music, which appeared on the eve of the Great War.”
– Norbert Dufourcq
