I can find almost no information on this composer, Emile Le Blanc. I found this piece in a book, "Romantic Flourishes" edited by Wayne Leupold and published by Belwin Mills in 1978.

The only info stated is: "The 'Processional March' is taken from an organ collection which was edited and copyrighted by E. E. Truette in 1894."

It's a typically "extroverted" march, with a more lyrical second theme.

The "march sections" are played on various degrees of the full organ, while the "lyric" part is played with the melody on the Choir Clarinet (with 8' Flute as well) and VERY FAST Tremulant, with the accompaniment on the Swell 8' stops.

I played this piece this morning for a special festival service at Our Lady of Grace. In listening to the playback, it sound like I'm still thinking in that MUCH more reverberant setting, but I guess it's OK.

We are ALMOST done with the Wirsching, although this morning I did this with only "front organ" Pedal, still no BIG reeds, and no tuning for 18 months - sounded GREAT, and more exciting than on the ole' Binns, nice as this organ is... ;-)

I never had that much "interest" in all this music written at the end of the 19th and into the 20th century, but having this historic organ, which was installed in 1909, has made me find new interest and some VERY nice, if not "deep," music!
