Edmond Jean Louis Missa (12 June 1861 - 29 January 1910) was a french composer. He studied in Paris (amongst many others) with Clement Loret, Eugene Gigout and Jules Massenet. From 1885 till his death he was organist in Notre-Dame-des-Blancs-Manteaux (Paris). Although he once received the Prix Cressent (in 1886 for his opera Juge et partie), he is obviously not a very famous composer: Neither an entry in the english wikipedia (though there is one in the german section), nor any uploads here in the concert hall. Five small pieces by him found their way into a collection edited by Timo Schmidt (http://shop.bischoff-verlag.de/Shop/Musik-Film/Noten/Leichte-Orgelstuecke-Band-1.html
). I couldn't trace where they come from originally.
I have to admit, that I was a little bit intrigued by Agnus_Dei and Erzahler, both of them doing the 10 parts of Arthur H. Bird's op. 37. If you not have already done so, you've got to listen to their playlist (xxx)! They have done a phantastic job bringing harmonium sound to the organ, so here is my little tribute to this kind of music.
Although these Missa pieces are much easier to play than those by Mr. Bird (mainly three voices, playable on one manual) it took me half a day to record them, and still there are some bugs in it, sorry for that...
Looking for an appropriate organ sample set on my computer, I found the Dingelstädt (surround) Demo-Version by SP, never used it before, but I was quite satisfied with the result.
This is no. 36 in the above mentioned booklet: Andantino (D maj).
