Bach: Chorale Preludes - Édouard Commette playing the organ of the Cathedral of St. Jean at Lyon - Édouard Commette (1883–1967) was an organist from Lyon in France of international fame who served the Archdiocese of Lyon and was organist at Basilique Notre Dame de Fourvière for over 50 years. Place Édouard Commette at the foot of the hill on which the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière is built is named in his honor. A student of Charles Widor and Victor Neuville, his recordings beginning in 1929 were known worldwide, and he was also known as a composer of accessible and tuneful organ music in his own right. This CD is derived from an early pressing, red leatherette spine, blue label Angel LP originally recorded by EMI in 1962. Cover, tray and disc art are included in the download.
