Composer: Anonymous french composers XVIIIth century
Sample Producer: Sonus Paradisi
Sample Set: Rozay en Brie, Notre Dame de la Nativité
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
Father Pingré, born in Paris 4h september 1711, died 1st May 1796. Roman catholic priest and theologian, he became a famous and most respected astronomer. He has also been Chancellor of the University and curator of the Ste Geneviève library. His organ book is composed of a collection of pieces from d'Agincourt , Boyvin and also from anonymous composers, presumably from the Rouen school (pupils of d'Agincourt and Boyvin).The pieces, short and simple , are without doubt written by trained and experienced professionals.
The Rozay en Brie organ ( here tuned in Lambert-Chaumont) suits well this music.
The pieces are of the 3rd ton. In this first sequence , the prelude is from Boyvin ( 2nd book), the other pieces are from anonymous composers.
The rest will be uploaded in small bunches, in order not to overload the Hall.
Performance: Live
Recorded in: Stereo
