2003 release. French organist André Marchal lifted the heavy drapery off of Baroque organ music and exposed the counterpoint through ingenious registration and a highly developed articulation, creating a revival of the music that had been submerged into the heaviness inspired by late-19th-century organs. These recordings capture Marchal performing on an early neo-Baroque organ in 1936 as well as Cavaillé-Coll's masterpiece in Saint-Eustache, Paris, in 1948, and covering a vast repertoire while illustrating the stops on the Baroque organ. Includes performances of compositions by Marchal, Dietrich Buxtehude, Bach, Antonio de Cabezón, Santa Maria, Francesco Landini, Giovanni Pierluigi di Palestrina, John Blow, Henry Purcell, Jan Sweelinck, and Louis Vierne.
