Organists and Organ Playing in Nineteenth-Century France and Belgium

Orpha Ochse

From the catastrophes of the French Revolution to a Golden Age of organ culture.

[O]ne simply must recommend this highly coherent and well-illustrated book...."-L'Orgue

Even the well-informed reader will find a number of surprises. Who knows, for example, that Fryderyk Chopin played the organ for a funeral service and that Lefebure-Wely, in turn, played the great pianist and composer's Preludes for his funeral at the Madeleine? The abundance of details, we should add, does nothing to obscure the architectural clarity of this book." -La Flute harmonique

Now Ms. Ochse has succeeded in producing still another landmark work.... Although the work is extraordinarily well documented, the prose retains a narrative quality throughout, at times even taking on the character of good storytelling." -The American Organist

Orpha Ochse, Professor Emerita at Whittier College, is author of The History of the Organ in the United States (Indiana University Press). She is well known as a teacher, lecturer, recitalist, and church musician.
