Henri Nibelle - Organ Music

Recommended Posts

Does anyone on here have the volume/s of Nibelles 50 pieces for liturgical use? I have heard extracts played and some of the pieces sound quite effective but would not really want to get hold of the whole lot unless it was worth it. His Carillon Is quite well known and I believe there is a quite effective Toccata too.

According to his French Wikipedia article, the Carillon orléanais and the three Toccatas are separate works. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Nibelle

The 50 pièces sur des thèmes liturgiques seems to consist of a collection of entrées, offertoires, élévations, etc. much in the manner of Franck's L'organiste and similar collections.

Hello,

Does anyone on here have the volume/s of Nibelles 50 pieces for liturgical use? I have heard extracts played and some of the pieces sound quite effective but would not really want to get hold of the whole lot unless it was worth it. His Carillon Is quite well known and I believe there is a quite effective Toccata too.

yes, I have the "50 pieces sur des thèmes liturgiques des dimanches et fêtes de l'année". You will find the content here.

Extracts from the foreword, written by Félix Raugel :

 

... L'organiste liturgique trouvera donc ici des morceaux de diverse importance pour cadrer avec les différentes phases de l'office: Préludes pour les Entrées, les Offertoires et les Sorties; pièces brèves pour les Interludes et les Versets; méditations recueillies pour les Élévations et Communions. Tous les procédés de l'école: fugues, canons à tous les intervalles, motifs obstinés de carillon, chromatises discrets aux enchaînements ingénieux, y sont employés spontanément, sans asservir ni paralyser le sentiment moderne de l'expression musicale, strictement conforme aux principes d'esthétique posés ou rappelés par les pontifes musiciens qui, de nos jours, ont assuré la réforme et la renaissance de la musique d'église. ...

 

Cheers

Thanks for all this - have just ordered!

The pieces arrived today and if first impressions are anything to go by this anthology will prove to be a real treasure trove. Think early Langlais, not too astringent, plainsong based and generally two stave with optional pedal. Nice!

Am late to this party but agree that these pieces are very useful, especially for formulating further ideas to cover the action in a service. NB
