Théodore Dubois (1837–1924) was one of the leading Parisian
composers of the
nineteenth century. Although his contemporaries frequently compared
him to Delibes, Widor,
and Lalo, his compositional style owes less to his own age than to
the music of Mendelssohn,
Weber, Gounod, and Berlioz.

Volume II of this “Urtext” edition of Dubois’s organ music – the
first edition of its
kind – contains pieces for three-manual organ dating from his tenure
as organist at the Church
of La Madeleine in Paris. Straightforward in form, these works, all
composed between 1877
and 1896, reflect his concern to produce music equally at home in
the church and concert hall.

Besides a detailed critical commentary in German, English, and
French, the volume also
contains a preface, facsimiles, and a catalogue of sources.

„The editions and printing/publishing are exemplary with a most
illuminating editorial introduction
that says much about nineteenth-century French organs, organists and
organ music. I recommend
the volume very warmly for these reasons. It is also good value for
