Liardons beautiful organ works are characterized by stylistic purity, clear voice guidance and musical simplicity.
Liardon died at the age of 44.
This amazing chorale trio refers on the Advent chorale tune “Gottes Sohn ist kommen":
"Gottes Sohn ist kommen
uns allen zu frommen
hier auf diese Erden
in armen Gebärden,
dass er uns von Sünde
freie und entbinde."
(T.: Michael Weiße, 1544)
