Michel Corrette (1709--1795) was born in Rouen, where his father Gaspard was an organist. Sadly, little is known about his early life, but we know he held positions as organist in several churches in Paris. For many years his reputation rested on his teaching methods and educational works, and he can claim to have written and published more teaching methods than any other composer. Correte composed four "Noël Suites", the "Nouveau Livre de noëls pour le Clavecin ou l'Orgue."

"Carillon" appears at the "end" of the 4 books, and can be used (I suppose) as a Postlude to any of the entire suites.

You'll feel like ALL the bells in Paris are ringing when you hear this! I hope you listen more than once, but don't listen too many times - or you'll feel like you are going crazy... ;-)

For this, I've used the "two contrasting Grand jeuxs" with 16' stops, and stops like the Grand Nazard 5 1/3' and Grand Tierce 3 1/5'. At first there are no chamades or 16 reed. First the 16' comes on, then the chamade of the Grand Orgue, and finally the chamade of the Raisonnance... ;-)

I wish EVERYONE a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and the BEST in 2014! :-)
