Completing all of the Heures Mystiques Opus 29 and 30. Agnus_Dei and myself have been working since May 30th this year to bring you all of the 100 sections of this work.
After searching the Internet I cannot find any complete recordings of all of the Heures Mystiques so I am declaring this unique.
The Opus 29 and 30 Heures Mystiques are made up of 5 each of Entrée, Offertoire Élévation Communion, Sortie and a Verset. These have been arranged into 5 Messe (including a verset in each) and have been uploaded and are in the Playlist.
There are actually 27 Versets in Op 29 and 23 Versets in op 30.
Please dip into the playlist from time to time;
Verset # 20 Allegro grazioso 0:00
Verset # 21 Allegro moderato 1:30
Verset # 22 Allegretto 3:22
Verset # 23 Allegro benmarcato 4:50
Published in 1896, Heures Mystiques is a collection of one-hundred short pieces for organ or harmonium.
Mystique - a quality of being special in a mysterious and attractive way.
Most of these movements do not seem especially mysterious but they are all attractive.
Léon Boëllmann (September 25, 1862 – October 11, 1897) was a French composer of Alsatian origin, known for a small number of compositions for organ. His best-known composition is Suite Gothique (1895), still very much a staple of the organ repertoire, especially its dramatic concluding Toccata.
