Choeur Gregorien de Paris, Thibaut Marlin, Director
Edward Schaefer, Herve Lamy, Charles Barbier, soloists

Includes all prayers and propers of the Easter Day Mass chanted in Latin; organ improvisations; peal of the bells

Recorded at Saint-Sulpice - 2 CDs with 64-page book containing essays by Mark Dwyer on the Vierne Mass and Camille Haedt on 19th and early 20th century Parisian liturgical practices; full stop lists of both organs at Saint-Sulpice; stunning photographs; the full text from the Roman Missal of the entire Mass in Latin and English with descriptions of how the music and liturgy integrate. This unique recording will give organists an understanding of the common influence shared by the 19th and early 20th century Parisian organists and the Catholic Church.

Sponsored by A.R. Schopp's Sons, Inc & Quimby Pipe Organs, Inc.

Its power coupled with the resonant acoustics make this setting not only historic but musically satisfying as well...I would rank this interpretation with Cochereau at Notre-Dame and Pincemaille at St Denis. The two choirs and soloists are fine
