Some days I wake up and think that Marcel Dupre was a genius. Other days I wake up and think he must have had 20 fingers and hit any random note going. When I hit any random note it sounds like a 4 year old smacking a piano. Then I decide maybe he did know what he is doing. Today is one of those days. Not sure what to make of this piece. Quite nice I suppose, but boy does it have a lot of accidentals in the score!
I stuck closely to the original registration requirements using flutes and a salicional in place of a bourdon.
Being an adagio I played it quite slowly, slower than other recordings. But this piece actually has some nice things going for it in the harmonies so it is nice to hear and appreciate each one.
