University Organist Delcamp Releases CD Featuring Music of Alexandre Guilmant

Organ Music of Alexandre Guilmant

A new CD on the Naxos label by Professor of Music and University Organist Robert Delcamp has recently been released.  The new CD, "Organ Music of Alexandre Guilmant",  was recorded in All Saints' Chapel in October of 2004 on the newly-renovated Casavant organ, and contains a selection of organ pieces by this significant late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century organist, composer, and teacher.  This is Professor Delcamp's fifth CD for the Naxos label, which was named the 2005 Label of the Year by the Classical Gramophone Awards.

   " It is surprising that a person so important to the history of organ music in France has become sidelined, the record industry showing little appetite for his output... The present disc provides some of his shorter works, from the red-blooded thrill of the opening Grand Chorus, through the charm of the Allegretto to the imposing Finale. Robert Delcamp ideally captures the style of the French Romantic era, greatly helped by a fine Casavant Organ in All Saints' Chapel at the University of the South in Tennessee. I don't have details of its specification, but in the expansive moments it is mighty impressive, yet can sing like a beautiful bird in the happy  Caprice. Good sound adds the final ingredient to one of the most enjoyable organ discs I have heard for a long time. "
