nachthorn Posted August 4, 2007 Share Posted August 4, 2007 A little while ago I acquired the first CD set (Cycle de Noël) of Georges Delvalleé's complete L'Orgue Mystique recording. The liner notes explain the concept of Tournemire's work - to supply music written in a quasi-improvisatory style using appropriate plainchant for each Sunday of the year - and the musical writing appeals to me greatly, although I get the impression that it's music that rewards patient study too. I've since acquired the third CD set (the first half of the Cycle après la Pentecôte) and am trying to get hold of the other two sets at a reasonable price. I have tried to locate the music, and the only source I can find is the Leduc website, where each 'week' is listed at an average price of 20 euros, or over £700 for all 51! Clearly at this price I need to be selective... What do people think about L'Orgue Mystique? Which 'weeks' are particularly appealing? Should I start at the start, or are there some parts more worth the effort than others? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
