The fourth volume in Signum's Charles-Marie Widor Organ Symphonies, performed by Joseph Nolan on the magnificent Cavaillé-Coll organ of L’église de la Madeleine, Paris.

Bridging the generations from Mendelssohn to Messiaen, Empire to Republic, Widor was born to the organ. His Lyonnaise kinsfolk were organ-builders, he showed early talent for the instrument and for decades was the embodiment of its might and splendour across the Gallic domain. His ‘Organ Symphonies’ have been genre-defining in their influence.

Joseph Nolan is an internationally renowned organist, acclaimed as "brilliant and such an astute musician" (Gramophone). He was appointed to Her Majesty’s Chapels Royal, St James’s Palace in 2004, and has since been invited to perform and record in some of the world’s premiere venues – including the refurbished Organ of Buckingham Palace Ballroom (SIGCD114) and the Organ of Saint-Sulpice in Paris (SIGCD167).

This looks like shaping up to be the Widor Organ Symphonies cycle of the decade” - Musicweb International
