BOËLLMANN: Offertoire & Communion on Mustel harmonium
juillet 12, 2010
Leon Boellmann Mustel harmonium Michael Hendron St, Vincent de Paul
The 2nd Offertoire and the 1st Communion from Heures Mystiques (Vol, 1/Op, 29) by Léon Boëllmann (1 862-1 897), He studied and later taught at l'École Niedermeyer in Paris and married the niece of his teacher Eugène Gigout, From the age of 19 until his early death he was organist at the church of St, Vincent de Paul in the 10th arrondissement in Paris, He is remembered for his 1 895 Suite Gothique for organ but the Heures Mystiques published the following year contain many liturgical pieces for harmonium full of beauty character and technique, In this Offertoire for instance the legato melody is introduced as a tenor voice played primarily with the right thumb with staccato counterpoint above and below, When the theme is re-introduced (at 2:40) the melody jumps between the right and left thumbs with different counterpoint,,,mind-boggling at first! It is interesting that Boëllmann's lyrical romantic music flourished at St, Vincent de Paul a building of austere classical grandeur, Performed by Michael Hendron on his Mustel harmonium built in Paris in 1 887; recorded 11 July 2 010,
