Carillon-Sortie  [4'51]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
