Suite évocatrice pour Grand Orgue – Charles Tournemire op.74
This five-movement suite is written in a neo-classical style and celebrates Classical French organ styles using stop combinations for titles as common in c18 Paris, ‘in the spirit of the ancient French style of the organ’. The work is dedicated to Paul Brunold who was organist at the Couperin family church of Saint Gervais, Paris. Written in 1938 as op.74, this was a late work; Tournemire died in mysterious circumstances a year later in 1939.
