Description:
This piece is the opening work from his book, La Lyre Sacree.

Louis Raffy (1868 — March 1931)

He was organist at the St. Nicolas church Nérac, which is in the South West of France. He was born near here. The organ doesn't appear to be very big, 23 ranks/stops from what I can work out from the French. It was built by Jules Magen Barthélémy, a student of Cavaille-Coll and in 1852 and modified and completed in 1862. It was restored in 1983 by the organ builder Alain Leclere.

If you visit this page you can see a picture of the organ and the church, which looks very beautiful. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Église_Saint-Nicolas_de_Nérac

Still getting to grips with Caen organ, so not sure everything is balanced sound wise. Probably overdid it having the 32fts on the whole piece, but the organ was new to me when I recorded it and it was still a novelty!

Hope you enjoy.
