Introduction

Great Organ of the Basilica Church of Notre-Dame la Daurade

Émile Poirier & Nicolas Lieberknecht (1861), Eugène Puget (1889), Jean-Baptiste Puget (1897); restoration by Jean-Loup Boisseau and Bertrand Cattiaux (1990-1992)

The Great Organ of la Daurade is what is known as a “transition organ” (between the classical and symphonic organs), suitable for both “early” music and that of the great French Romantic composers. Its harmonisation is calm, with flowing, polished sounds, quite the opposite of the Great Organ of Saint-Sernin, for example, with its intense harmonies. The tone colours it produces also enable delightful performances of the Romantic German repertoire, from Mendelssohn to Brahms, and not forgetting Liszt.
