Hannah Parry-Ridout
MusicWeb International, January 2013

For students and scholars this CD represents a snapshot of an important stage in the French organ tradition which has so far been unavailable. The recordings are very good, they display the articulation and registration very clearly and the organ makes a very full sound. Communion is a particularly interesting piece…It is…very quiet, which means you can hear the mechanical noise in the background, which is rather nice. This is also true of Gigout’s rendition of Boëllmann’s Elevation…this recording is particularly poignant. One can hear the emotion behind the sound, with some very carefully placed cadences…the Cantabile is played expressively, utilising the full tonal range of the quiet stops on the organ.

Joseph Bonnet[’s]…recordings are very sensitive…The Dedicace is full of sensitivity and contains some delicious harmonies. The baroque pieces played by Bonnet are very interesting.

All in the all, this collection of recordings is quite good fun…it is worth a listen. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
