The French word ‘noël’ is closely associated with the organ; this new recording from the Breton organist Christian Lambour features such works from the 17th – 20th c. + The album, recorded on the historic organ of the former Benedictine Abbey of Neu St Johann in Switzerland, takes in some of France’s most assured writers for the instrument, from well-known figures such as Franck and Théodore Dubois to lesser-known names like Michel Corrette and Alexis Chauvet. + Mr. Lambour’s recital is rounded off with movements from Boëly’s Messe du jour de Noël, published in 1842 for performance on Christmas Day.
