Le Livre D'orgue De Montreal

Recommended Posts

If you are interested in the French Classical repertoire, then you will find this a wonderful resource.

 

'Le livre d'orgue de Monteal' is the largest collecton of C18th organ music running to some 540 pages, the music is mostly Magnificats and Masses. It was brought to Montreal in 1724 by John Girard, a Sulpician clerc from Bourges in the centre of France, schoolmaster and organist at the Notre-Dame church in 1765, who was the first professional musician in Montreal.

 

Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) has made these available on the 'net as either facsimile or modern editions and have included audio files so you can hear performances of most of the pieces whilst following the scores. Although the site's in French it's very simple to navigate.

 

You can print whatever copies you wish directly from the website free of charge!
