On his new album, Antwerp cathedral organist Peter Van de Velde gathers almost exclusively world-premiere recordings, the centrepiece of which is the only organ symphony by the Belgian Camille Jacquemin.

Jacquemin had been a pupil of Louis Vierne and Charles Tournemire in Paris. His three-movement symphony is dedicated to Louis Vierne and clearly inspired by his tonal language, which makes the work a real discovery! The same can be said of the only organ work by Joseph Jongen's younger brother, Léon Jongen, who was known primarily as a pianist. His composition In Memoriam Regis is a requiem on the death of the popular Belgian King Albert the First and is followed by the Marche religieuse of his presumably better-known older brother Joseph.

The Brussels Servite Brother Jean-Marie Plum left a large number of organ works. His three-movement cycle complements the programme of rarities just as appropriately as the two compositions by the Karl Straube pupil Raymond Moulaert and the Diptyque composed by Pierre Froidebise.
