Paul Isom Posted August 6, 2017 Share Posted August 6, 2017 Having bought myself a portable toaster to enable me to practice at our French house, I have been seeking out various interesting repertoire to amuse myself with my single manual (actually 2 plus imaginary pedal). I have been using my iPad a fair bit and have downloaded all volumes of Les Maitres Contemporains de l'orgue from the IMSLP. These contain some mostly unknown works by composers from all over the world. The French volumes are fantastic and contain some more obscure works by Mulet, Krieger (Toccata), Nibelle, Messerer etc. I can heartily recommend them, and the content is not restricted to just manuals only, and contained in the volumes are some pretty meaty works. I've also been hammering through the Litaize 24 pieces, Fleury 24 Pieces, Vierne 24 pieces, and also the Langalis 12 pieces as well. Can anyone explain the significance of 24 as a figure here, and are there any others who can illuminate me as to the importance of the number 24?
