The pipe organ at Abbaye Saint-Ouen de Rouen in France is one of Cavaillé-Coll's masterpieces. Daniel Roth plays a varied program on this pipe organ featuring works by Guilmant, Boulanger, Vierne, Alain, Messiaen and one of his own compositions, based on the Magnificat chant. The recording was made in Surround Sound by the noted recording engineer Christoph Frommen and will play on either a regular CD player or an SACD player. The SACD layer has a special bonus narrated tour of the stops at Saint-Ouen. In this bonus section, Daniel Roth talks about different individual stops and groups of stops, then improvises on them. Included in the 32-page booklet accompanying the recording is an interview with Denis Lacorre, the organbuilder who is the curator of this pipe organ. Denis Lacorre discusses fascinating details about the history, design and care of the pipe organ at Saint-Ouen. Numerous photos are included in the booklet along with excellent notes on the music by Stephen Tharp and an essay on the week the JAV team spent in the medieval town of Rouen. This disc will play on a standard CD player, but an SACD player is needed to hear Daniel Roth's narrated tour and to hear it in Surround Sound.
