Michael Murray draws on his personal acquaintances with Messiaen, Langlais, and Dupré as well as period documents, original accounts, early records, and other primary sources to sketch vivid portraits of these important 20th-century composers as well as their predecessors — Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, Franck, Widor, and Vierne. Murray provides students and admirers of French music and culture many details of the lives of these eminent Frenchmen and explores the relationship between organbuilding and composition as an insight into interpretation.
