Catalogue Number: 04J080
Description: These two big symphonies are firmly in the Franco-Belgian organ tradition, both more-or-less tone-paintings inspired by sacred works of 15th and 16th century Flemish Primitive painters. Op. 24 (1922) depicts the events in the Van Eyck brothers' "The Mystic Lamb" while the 1923 Passion's four movements - Prologue, Le Tumulte au Prétoire, Marche au Supplice and O Golgotha! - were inspired by Rogier Van der Weyden's paintings. Peter Van de Velde (Pierre Schuyen organ of Our Lady's Cathedral, Antwerp). SACD hybrid.
