Product Description

In the Paris of the 1870s, when Widor composed works heard on this CD, the musical establishment of Saint-Sulpice included two Cavaillé-Coll organs, a male choir of more than 200 voices, and a very accomplished boys’ choir of 40. Recreating the effect for this recording are organists Daniel Roth at the Grand Orgue, Sophie-Véronique Choplin at the orgue de choeur, and the professional Mainz Figural Choir.
