Mass for Notre Dame - David Briggs - Choir and Organ
David Briggs has spent much time and persistent care in transcribing improvisations by Pierre Ccochereau, organist at Notre-Dame until his death in 1984. These he has folded into his own rich, harmonically adventurous and appealing Mass setting, itself borrowing in parts from the transcriptions, and into which he has inserted his own improvisations for Introit, Offertoire and Sortie. The recital, which also includes a recent Trinity College Service, Te Deum and evening collects, is an inspiring introduction to this consummate composer and organist.
