'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)
Louis-James Lefébure-Wély (1817-1869) wrote this Marche as part of a collection called Meditaciones Religiosas, for use in accompanying a procession or as a closing voluntary. It is music which begs an operatic scenario, and which demands just about everything available in terms of registration.

from notes by Ian Carson © 1991

Cette Marche, qui fait partie d'un recueil intitulé Meditaciones Religiosas, peut accompagner une procession ou servir de sortie. C'est une musique qui réclame un scénario d'opéra, et qui fait appel a à peu près tout ce qu'il y a de disponible en termes de régistration.

Louis-James Lefébure-Wély (1817-1869) schrieb den vorliegenden Marche als Teil einer Serie mit dem Titel Meditaciones Religiosas, die zur Begleitung von Prozessionen oder für Orgelsoli zum Abschluß des Gottesdienstes eingesetzt werden sollte. Es handelt sich um Musik, die dringend nach einer Opernkulisse verlangt und praktisch alles in Anspruch nimmt, was an Registerkombinationen möglich ist.
