Ernest Grosjean (1844 – 1936) published “Pièces pour orgue ou harmonium”, a set of 56 pieces in two volumes, in 1902. The first volume contains 33 easy pieces, that can be played without the use of pedals. As far as I know, “bref” means “short”. So this is a short offertoire. Though it’s not really that much shorter than other offertoires by Grosjean. The only registration indication Grosjean gives is “Grand jeu”. To add a little variation in my performance I make it a play across three mmanuals.

The recording was done with the Hauptwerk software and the sampleset, made by Voxus, of the Stahlhuth/Jahn organ in the St. Martin’s church, Dudelange.
