What is this project all about?

During one week in April 2019 a CD shall be recorded at St. Sulpice in Paris, France. The choirs from Germany will join master organist Daniel Roth and record with him rare musical works by composers like Schmitt, Lefébure-Wély, Fauré (who was choir-organist), Widor, Dupré and Roth, who served as "organistes titulaires". Some of the works have not been recorded before, most of the works are rarely performed because of the enormous demands on the singers and the instruments.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

We want to create a sounding document of the unique tradition of choral and organ music at St. Sulpice. A CD that will interest both lovers of organ music and of choral music.

Why would you support this project?

By supporting this project, you can contribute to preserve the memory of a unique musical monument, the historic organ at St. Sulpice and its tradition.
