17 pages, large 4to (35.5 x 27cm), 14 September 
The multi-sectional second Choral unites techniques of earlier centuries, passacaglia and fantasia with Franck’s own thematic transformation in a rich, modern harmonic language often pushing the boundaries of tonality. Wagner’s Parsifal, which Franck heard in Bayreuth in 1882, stalks these pages as surely is in other fin de siècle mystical works such as Elgar’s Gerontius. The chefs d’oeuvres of French twentieth-century by Jehan Alain and Messiaen have their origins in such works by César Franck, the great master of nineteenth-century organ music.
