Description:
Jean Langlais (1907 - 1991)

French organist from Brittany who became blind at the age of three. Studied at the Institute for the Blind in Paris and then with Dupre and Tournemire. Eventually became organist at St. Clotilde, where Tournemire and Franck had been organists. Inspired by medieval works, gregorian chant and Breton folk songs.

This work comes from a suite of pieces and they are dedicated to Langlais' teacher, Marcel Dupre.

It is a simple piece calling for two 16 foots and an 8 foot on the manuals with a 4 foot on the pedal playing the cantus firmus of the kyrie. The 16 foots come from the using Dulciana and Gamba 8 foot with the Suboctave coupler. The pedal Super Octave provides the 4 foot.

Hope you enjoy!
