Daquin: Nouveau livre de noëls, Op. 2

Adriano Falcioni (organ)



Scheduled for release on 6 October 2017. Order it now and we will deliver it as soon as it is available.

Born into a family of Italian origins, Louis‐Claude Daquin lived in France during the reign of Louis XIV. He studied with Louis Marchand, and in 1739 was named organist of the Chapelle Royale. In 1755, he was also appointed organist at Notre‐Dame Cathedral. His most important composition for organ is the Nouveau Livre de noëls, a collection of variations on traditional French Christmas songs.

The “Noëls” are very attractive organ pieces, depicting in musical terms the history of the birth of Christ, and expressing the warm, intimate and pastoral atmosphere of Christmas Time.

Played by Adriano Falcioni on the magnificent historic Cavaillé‐Coll organ of the Gellone Abbey in St‐Guilhem le Désert, built in 1782 and perfectly suited for the recording of Daquin’s Noëls.

The booklet provides all information on the organ, including its disposition.
