'Stunning … a revelatory performance, reaching into the very heart of a work in which 'there are dark forces at work' … a real treat … the whole presentation is masterly—superb playing and superb engineering' (Gramophone)

'Thrilling music, thrillingly played' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Superb' (International Record Review)

'Here's a spectacular record' (Classic CD)

'If you seek a recording of Dupré's works which does full justice to the music's myriad shades and inflections in an acoustic which leaves you quite simply in awe, look no further. One could almost imagine Dupré himself improvising the magical sounds pervading St Paul's. Need I say more?' (Cathedral Music)

'John Scott’s understanding and deft touch in Dupré make this collection a must-have' (MusicWeb International)

Choral et Fugue, Op 57
composer
1962; à Monsieur Jean Gillet, curé de Saint-Sulpice. En souvenir du centenaire du Grand Orgue

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Choral et Fugue, Op 57, based on plainsong and composed in 1962, is inscribed ‘À Monsieur Jean Gillet, curé de Saint-Sulpice. En souvenir du centenaire du Grand Orgue’. The Choral is a canonically ingenious four-part piece (Andante in F sharp minor 2/4) on the Salve regina. The succeeding gigue-like but no less contrapuntally ingenious Fugue (Allegro in A major) is based on the Easter Alleluia.
