I also have heard parts of the Pierre Pincmaille = series, which is nice as well.   Another favorite (albeit not on a French organ) is the set by Guenter = Kaunzinger recorded on the large 6-manual Jann organ at the Waldsassen = Basilica and the big Klais at Limburg. Kaunzinger plays with fire and passion, = and I quite forget the organs are modern German... Highly recommended = (Novalis label) Alas, Kaunziger's Vieren cycle is out of issue - it is fine as well...   Best wishes,   Jonathan Orwig ----- Original Message -----=20 From: RSiegel920@aol.com=20 To: pipechat@pipechat.org=20 Sent: Tuesday, November 18, 2003 9:29 PM Subject: Widor recordings     I am seeking the wisdom of the many astute members as to their = opinions as to the best recordings of the Widor symphonies.

W. Gray, if I recall correctly.)   It makes a good anthem if your choir enjoys singing Bach and/or if you can inspire the choir members with your own enthusiasm for the choral works. There is an anthem extracted from Cantata 79 for SATB choir, two French horns, and organ, which may be led and accompanied by organ alone.   Some enterprising arranger rewrote the cheerful work as a duet for piano and organ in F major, if memory serves.   Enjoy!   Pat Maimone patmai@juno.com http://www.chvago.org   ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand!

Thanks and regards:) Dick Siegel Ben Van Oosten! All the recordings were made on Cavaille Colls with which Widor could be associated. My fav. is St. Ouen. The liner notes alone make these CDs a = great thing to have. I strongly suggest NOT buying this music recorded on = anything other than a Cavaille Coll. Its really ear opening to hear that music = played on the organs it was written for, noisy barker machines, ventils, glorious acoustics, REAL anches, fonds, and strings.... the whole thing is just = beautiful.
