…Tribute to Tournemire
A appreciative overview of the mystical creations of Charles Tournemire, pupil of a successor to Cesar Franck at the organ of the Church of St. Clothilde, Paris.
CHARLES TOURNEMIRE: Carillon Paraphrase, from Suite for the Office of the Assumption (L'Orgue Mystique, Op. 57, no. 35) John Seboldt (1927-1963 E.M. Skinner and Aeolian-Skinner organs/Cathedral Church of St Paul, MN)
Tournemire's organ music, all of it inspired by the rituals of the Roman Catholic Church combines moments of ecstatic vision with others of intimate, blissful repose...sweet poetry with blinding revelation.
