'My vote for the best organ record of 1991 … another Herrick/Hyperion marvel' (Gramophone)

'Here is something truly spectacular. Hyperion's vivid recording of this magnificent instrument stands out as one of the best recordings of an organ currently available on CD' (The Good CD Guide)

'A treasure chest of sparkling jewels … polished and displayed to perfection' (Organists' Review)

Grand Chœur in B flat major
composer
from Douze Pièces

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Théodore Dubois' Grand Choeur, from Douze Pièces, is an imposing march but, unlike Lefébure-Wély, his registration instructions do advise the player to leave something in reserve for the ending, which is marked, in disarmingly small print 'Toute la force'. This is a direction which its dedicatee, Henri Dallier, organist at St Eustache at the time, would have had the armoury of pipework to fulfil.
