Carillons For Organ...


Recommended Posts

I have a friend who collects Carillons written for Organ - he's found a staggering number of them. I thought it might be interesting to share what we know and see if there are any he's missed!

I have links to Audio files of some of these, I'll post for those that I do.

 

Böellmann - Carillon

Dupre - Carillon

Eymieu - Carillon

Faulkes - Carillon

Fleuret - Carillon

Jacob, G - Carillon

Mulet - Carillon-Sortie

Murril - Carillon

Matthey - Toccata-Carillon

Nibelle - Carillon Orleanais

Orwig - Toccata-Carillon

Sowerby - Carillon

Van den Berg - Carillon

Vierne - Carillon de Westminster, Carillon de Longpoint

 

I'm sure in my haste I've forgotten a number of them - any one want to add?

Hello,

 

there are two collections of carillons I know of. One from the Dr. Butz Verlag, named "Carillons in der Orgelmusik". You find there the follwing pieces explicitely named Carillon and not in your list:

 

Brosset, Jules - Carillon

Boulay, Joséphine - Petit Carillon

Claussmann, Aloys - Carillon

Couperin, Louis - Carillon

Doumergue, Abbé Etienne - Entrée-Carillon

Dubois, Théodore - Entrée en forme de Carillon

Goodhart, Arthur Murray - Carillon

Guéniffey, Maxence - Carillon bref

Guittard, Lucien - Carillon

Mignan, Edouard - Carillon

Pineau, Charles - Marche sur un thème de carillon

Renard, Georges - Carillon

Reuchsel, Amédée - Carillon

Tritant, Gustave - Carillon

Vierne, René - Carillon

Willscher, Andreas - Petit Carillon

 

The second came from Kevin Mayhew "carillon, a chime of organ music" with the following explicite carillon pieces:

 

Higgins, Michael - Carillon

Wright, Andrew - Carillon (Easter morning)

Jordan, John - St Andrew of Crete's carillon

What a harvest!

Returning from Holiday (having had a "Night in Tunisia" for two weeks and did even find, but not play, a Mutin-Cavaillé-Coll in the Cathedral of the Capital Tunis...), I was thinking about posting into the German Orgelforum about music with a connection to "bells", as we may have a re-inauguration of ancient bells (1290, 1409, 1540) after repair next year, but in the Mander forum it is all ready-to-read...

 

It may be felt inappropriate here, but are there suggestions for vocal/choral music touching carillons or the sound of bells, too?

On board or via PM - thanks to everybody.

I have a dim memory (in fact most seem to be these days!) of a church somewhere with a small keyboard just by the organ console where one could also play the tower bells from - 'some interesting possibilites there!!

'Cloches' by Marcel Fournier is an ingenious little gem as well - got a recording of this at La Madeleine, Paris by Carolyn Shuster-Fournier - not sure if the piece was ever published, as never seen a reference to it anywhere and this seems to be the only recording of it.

Members of the Organ Club heard Mme C S-F playing this little item in Paris, La Trinite this spring. She was very keen to pass copies on, so if you're keen to acquire this item, PM me and I can let you have her e-mail address.

Many thanks to the forum members who assisted me with the Fournier piece - what a forum full of wonderful people!

 

To add to the list of carillon-type works, there are a few by the Belgian composer Paul Barras:

 

- Carillon de Mehaigne

- Carillon de Strassen

- Carillon de Schuttrange

- Introduction et Carillon

 

You can see a sample page for these (and other) works at the following address:
