Marcel Lanquetuit: Toccata In D For Organ

Books | Organ

Publisher: Alphonse Leduc
Composer: Marcel Lanquetuit
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Marcel Lanquetuit (1894-1985) studied at the Paris Conservatoire before becoming organist at the church of Saint-Godard in Rouen, followed by the Cathedral. As well as being a prominent organist of his time, Lanquetuit was a renowned composer, but chose to improvise rather than write. A few of his notated compositions remain, however, including the grand and mighty Toccata in D major, published in 1927.

Toccata in D major is typical of the French style and is dedicated to Lanquetuit's first teacher, Albert Dupré. The incessant, staccato chords and memorable melody create a Toccata for Organ like no other, making for an essential addition to the advanced organist's repertoire.

      This is certainly one of the better toccatas in the literature. It was inspired by the wonderful variety of harmonic chords in octaves available from the 61 notes of an organ keyboard. A real pleasure to play.
      The is nothing about this music I don't like. I'm just sorry it isn't more prominent in the organ literature.

      This is an amazing piece very much in the style of Mulet's Tu es Petra. It is well worth the effort to learn and ideal for Paschaltide and other festive occasions. I intend to use it as a voluntary on Low Sunday this year.
