Title of a beautiful piece ?

Hello, I've arrived here from Youtube ( ). On this video one can hear a short extract of a gorgeous thema, and I would really like to know the name of this organ score...
I asked the author but he has probably not seen my message and didn't answer.
He pointed to this site on the video's description, but there are so many recordings it would take me years to find THE piece by listening tons of them !

On the video linked above, it's between 1:24 and 2:06. Ternary, minor : it's all I can say but these few notes (B G C B G A B G C B G F# ) won't stop to turn in my brain until I find what it is ! Please heeelp ! :-)

I'm not a specialist of this repertoire but it sounds like a French Romantic Toccata or Finale from late 19th, early 20th century, and it is in e minor (unless the organ is tuned other than 440). Lots of possibilities here. Dubois, Guilmant?

It could very well be an improvisation also, it's a typical way to end a service or concert that sounds impressive but can be easy to play.

Keep us posted.

RE: Title of a beautiful piece ?

Thank you for your answer !

"it sounds like a French Romantic Toccata or Finale from late 19th, early 20th century," it was what I thought at first listen, but the author of the video eventually answered my question : it's the prelude from "psalm 146 extract from Choral Book by the contemporary composer Marco den Toom."
I didn't know him, I regret his book is expensive (and he doesn't seem to sell each piece separately, so...)

Here is the link :
