Reviews

'An organ, the mere sound of which can send shivers down the spine … breathtaking … another splendid disc as thrilling and truly spectacular as they, or anyone else for that matter, have so far produced' (Gramophone)
Mulet was the son of the choirmaster at the basilica of Sacré Coeur in Paris and was involved in the music there from boyhood. He progressed to the Paris Conservatoire where he was a major prizewinner both on the cello and the organ, and then pursued a musical career which in its earlier years brought him church and academic appointments in Paris.

He wrote Carillon-Sortie during the time prior to 1917 when he was organ professor at the Ecole Niedermeyer and organist of the St Roch church in Paris. It is a brilliant final voluntary in toccata style, imitative of a melodic set of bells, and dedicated to one of the leading virtuoso organists of the day, Joseph Bonnet, who played at the Paris church of St Eustache.

from notes by Ian Carson © 1994

Mulet était le fils du chef de choeur de la basilique du Sacré Coeur à Paris et il avait participé aux activités musicales de l’église depuis son enfance. Il fit ses études au Conservatoire de Paris où il obtint des prix de violoncelle et d’orgue, puis il poursuivit une carrière musicale qui lui valut, au début, des postes religieux et académiques à Paris. Il composa Carillon-Sortie pendant la période, avant 1917, où il était professeur d’orgue à l’Ecole Niedermeyer et organiste de l’Eglise St Roch à Paris. C’est un brillant morceau d’orgue en style de toccata, imitant un carillon et dédié à l’un des grands virtuoses de l’orgue de l’époque, Joseph Bonnet, qui jouait dans l’église de St Eustache, à Paris.

Français: Madeleine Jay

Als Sohn des Chorleiters der Basilika der Sacré Coeur in Paris war Mulet bereits während seiner Kindheit am dortigen Musikleben beteiligt. Er studierte später am Konservatorium Paris, wo er bedeutende Cello- und Orgel-Preise gewann. Zu Beginn seiner musikalischen Laufbahn hatte er verschiedene kirchliche und akademische Anstellungen in Paris.

Mulet schrieb das Carillon-Sortie vor 1917, als er noch Orgellehrer an der Ecole Niedermeyer und Organist der Kirche St. Roch in Paris war. Das Werk ist ein großartiges, den Gottesdienst abschließendes Orgelsolo im Stil einer Tokkata, das melodische Glockenklänge nachahmt. Es ist Joseph Bonnet, einem der führenden Orgelsolisten seiner Zeit gewidmet, der an der Pariser Kirche St Eustache spielte.
