On his new double SACD Léon Berben takes us to France and presents us the complete hymns by Jehan Titelouze (1563 - 1633), published in 1623.

The historic organ in Juvigny's Notre-Dame church was built in 1663 by Jean de Villers and Jacques Carouge. It is one of the best preserved early baroque instruments in France and a perfect instrument for this repertoire. Berben's judicious and colourful registrations and his much-praised ornamental artistry are the result of extensive source studies and let this music, often described as "austere", emerge in new splendour.

“Berben’s impressive registration choices bring much variety and colour to these marvellous scores and, I have to say, work consistently throughout.”

Until this new release came along I’d never heard the name Jehan Titelouze. He was a French Catholic priest, composer, poet and organist, who served as a canon and organist at Rouen Cathedral. Praised for his improvisatory skills and virtuoso technique on the organ, he was sought after far and wide as a performer. As a composer he is regarded as among the greatest early Baroque composers of France, and is credited as the first composer of the French organ school. His Hymnes de l’église of 1623, featured in this album, and his Magnificat settings written three years later, are considered his finest achievements...
