Ugh!

This type of disonance is what turns an average person off to the organ...

Agree. Strongly. With. The. Previous. Comments.

I disagree. It is not that dissonant. The original chant is clearly recognizable, and the harmonies (more modal than tonal) are supporting it! Of course, it's an improvisation, thus a bit hectic and missing a bit construction. Though... Impressive once you know that in those years Jean Langlais was pretty much disabled by illness (not counting he was blind).

How does holding a chord for 20 minutes constitute the label of improvisation?

By: stlorganist on Oct, 21 2014

What a stark and unpleasant contrast to the Daniel Roth improvisation we heard on this same music last hour. 20 min of mind numbing inharmonic dissonance!

22 minutes of horrid, dissonant chords that all sound alike!

By: warrior on Jan, 26 2017

On the bright side, the next item will seem so much better once this torture ends.

By: Tromba on Nov, 02 2017

But it doesn't end...
