* Léon Boëllmann

Léon Boëllmann (1862–1897) studied at the École Niedermeyer and
served as titular organist
at Saint-Vincent-de-Paul in Paris. Following in the tradition of
Saint-Saëns, Franck and Gigout,
he wrote music reflecting the elegance and urbanity of the Belle
Époque. In 1896 he published
a collection of one hundred short pieces for organ or harmonium
entitled Heures mystiques.
These pieces now form volume III of Helga Schauerte-Maubouet’s
practical Urtext edition.

The collection is divided into three sub-volumes reflecting the
numbering and arrangement of
Boëllmann’s autograph fair copy. It offers organists a
treasure-trove of easy pieces for use
in church services. To play these pieces imaginatively on
multi-manual organs, the performer
must suitably adapt the musical text: the editor has provided an
appendix with registrations
for Offertoires I-II (op. 29, nos. 1-2) to serve as examples. In
addition to a detailed preface
and facsimiles, the edition includes a critical report in three
languages and a list of sources.

- First complete Urtext edition of the works of Léon Boëllmann in
six volumes
- Easy pieces for use in church services
- Includes the latest scholarly findings and newly discovered
- Detailed preface, critical report in French/English/German,
facsimiles of previously unknown sources, list of sources

“...: highly recommended.”
