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 is a choral in four different settings. Not sure if it is a real tune or one Langlais made up. This is quite a strange piece and not for the casual listener - definitely Langlais at his most Langlais-esque!
One day, as my skills grow, I'll return to this as I don't quite do the final verse justice enough!
Hope you enjoy....
