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. The fifth piece is a sortie. Not a fastpaced boisterous one, it feels somewhat more solemn. Perhaps like a reminder to carry home the message heard during service. Or it’s just the style of Grosjean.

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.
