Composer: Louis Raffy
Sample Producer: Milan Digital Audio
Sample Set: Our Lady of Mt. Carmel E.M. Skinner
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Romantic
From his book 'La Lyre Sacree'. I changed the registration from the original, because there are only so many times that you can play a series of Communions and Elevations on Voix Celeste and Flute before you get bored!

Louis Raffy (1868 — March 1931)

He was organist at the St. Nicolas church Nérac, which is in the South West of France. He was born near here. The organ doesn't appear to be very big, 23 ranks/stops from what I can work out from the French. It was built by Jules Magen Barthélémy, a student of Cavaille-Coll in 1852 and modified and completed in 1862. It was restored in 1983 by the organ builder Alain Leclere.

If you visit this page you can see a picture of the organ and the church, which looks very beautiful.Église_Saint-Nicolas_de_Nérac

I recorded three pieces from this book long before I bought the Caen sample set. I did think of re-recording them, but they sound pretty good on the Skinner anyway.

Hope you enjoy.
