I play this piece because it is a splendid example of French baroque organ music.
Jacques Boyvin was perhaps a pupil of Nicolas Antoine LeBègue. He got the post of organist at the Rouen Cathedral Notre-Dame in 1674 after a competition of several applicants. His Premier Livre d'Orgue shows us a composer who his searching for his own style. The Suite du 5e. Ton from Second Livre d'Orgue is a piece which correspondends to the monumentality of the Rouen cathedral and its lage Robert-Clicquot-organ (not preserved) with four manuals and pedals.
The dramatic Prélude is followod by three numbers which presents a very solid technique of composition. From the fifth mouvement we can listen to four pieces each with a personal musical expression. Especially the Tierce en taille is a lyrical masterpiece with the profile of a sentimantal baroque Opera-Aria. The Grand Dialogue à quatre Choeurs is a firework of Trompette-Fanfares and uses the full dynamic range of the four manuals of his organ - last but not least also the long reverb of a monumental cathedral.
