Composer: Lemmens, Jacques-Nicolas
Sample Producer: Piotr Grabowski
Sample Set: Cracov, St. John Cantius 2004
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Romantic
This Prière in E major (nr 14 from École d'Orgue) is one of the better known pieces of Lemmens. There are already at least 4 performances of this Prière here at contrebombarde. But I like the piece a lot, so I didn't want to omit it in this mini series.

Lemmens prescribes a Voix Humaine for the right hand part. The Cracov sample set doesn't have one. I tried to emulate it with the Cromorne of the second manual coupled to the Harmonia Aethera of the third.

For those who don't already have it, the score is available on IMSLP in an excellent edition by Pierre Gouin:
Performance: Live
Recorded in: Stereo
