Raymond Daveluy (1926-2016): In Memoriam #1646
…a tribute to the venerable recitalist, composer, and teacher who for 42 years was master of the mighty Beckerath organ at the Oratoire Saint-Joseph in Montreal.
We had hoped this program would be part of the celebration of Messr. Daveluy’s 90th birthday, an anniversary he did not live to see (b. 12/23/26 - d. 9/1/16).
The interview was recorded at his Montreal apartment in October 2011. Additional excerpts from our conversation with Messr. Daveluy (in English) can be enjoyed here:
Pierre Nadeau of Société Radio-Canada filmed an interview (in French) with Messr. Daveluy in February 1961, shortly after the installation of the Beckerath pipe organ at the Oratoire Saint-Joseph in Montreal:
You also can view an extended master-class featuring Daveluy, filmed at the Church of St. John the Baptist in Montreal.
