Madame Marie-Louise Jaquet-Langlais and Dr. Fred Tulan have produced this collection to honor the 90th birthday of the composer and the 100th anniversary of the American Guild of Organists. This collection features the final unpublished organ solo by Jean Langlais, 'Pre'lude Gregorien,' as well as ten recently-composed organ solos in tribute to Langlais by such notables composer/organists as Jean Guillou, Naji Hakim, Antoine Tisne', George Bake, Joyce Jones, Anthony Newman, and Frederick Swann. This unique book also contains previously unpublished photographs of Langlais, written memories by Langlais' students and colleagues, and an essay by Dr. Tulan on Langlais, Messiaen, and their colleagues from L'Ecole de Coloristes. A valuable collection of challenging organ solos with important historical and musicological references. Spiral bound.
