Tournemire's rarely recorded, monumental Seven Last Words employs a dense, French late-Romantic style that makes up a musical "program," dramatically depicting the phrases uttered by Christ in his final hours. Featured performer at the 2004 and 2006 AGO conventions, Martin Jean is Professor of organ at Yale University and Director of the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. The National Lutheran Choir’s first recording on Gothic! David Cherwien directs the NLC—2007 winner of the Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence– through a program of popular French choral music, joined by organist Martin Jean of Yale, playing on the Casavant Organ (Opus 1177) at Saint Andrew’s Lutheran Church, Mahtomedi, Minnesota. Schooled by both Franck and Widor, Louis Vierne brought the great French Romantic organ symphony to its zenith. Martin Jean brings these masterworks to life, using the full spectrum of sound available on Woolsey Hall's great organ.
