Program and Notes
Maurice & Marie-Madeleine Chevalier Duruflé
play the organs of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
Washington, DC

Recorded in 1967, this historic recital is the premiere recording of the Basilica's two large organs, built by the Möller. The recording is full of important moments: the transcription of a Handel organ concerto played as a duet on the two instruments, Maurice Duruflé's transcription of Tournemire's improvisation on Victimae Pascali, played by Mme. Duruflé.  The concert concludes with Maurice Duruflé's Prelude and Fugue on the name of Alain (again, played by Mme. Duruflé).  Those looking to find an example of authentic French organ playing need look no further.

Fuga in C, BuxWV 174—D. Buxtehude

Organ Concerto in A, Op. 7, No. 2—G.F. Handel

Reviewer: Joseph Marasco from United States  
I have had this album since 1973 and it remains my favorite.  The variety is refreshing and the Pontifical Trumpet is simply amazing.
