Release (Publication) of the CD, The Soul’s Lyre (La Lyre de l’âme), a work for organ by Marie-Joseph Alexandre Déodat de Séverac by Olivier Vernet and the Children’s Choir of Colmar under the direction of Arlette Steyer on Ligia Digital.
The church organ occupies a distinguished and privileged place in the history of music. From the plethora of works written for it to its ambiguous popularity, rather through some secret agreement, there is a continuous and passionate relationship between composer and instrument, “The Soul’s Lyre.”
The three works for organ are performed on the great Dominique Thomas organs of the Monaco Cathedral, and the Children’s Choir of Colmar was produced at the Church of Saint-Laurent de Sausheim.
