The only available recording of the masterpieces of five major post-classical composers, played on four top level organs which perfectly suit the music, with the genuine registrations and the exact style of the time.  More than two and a half hours of rare music, splendidly recorded.  The booklet which comes within the box, in colour, contains full explanations on the musicians and the specifications of the recorded organs.
‘A sumptuous double CD...  This music sounds admirably well with outstanding gusto and sensibility on exceptional and matching instruments.  An authentic discovery.’
  (Michel Roubinet, Diapason n° 442, November 1997.  Award : ¥¥¥¥¥)
 
‘Nicolas Gorenstein plays with perfect taste, doing neither too much nor too few.  He choosed four magnificent instruments, tones of which suit these musics perfectly.’
  (Hervé Elie, Le Monde de la Musique n° 215, November 1997.  Award : ¤¤¤¤)
 
‘Gorenstein put himself at the keyboards, and what a bliss !  Now it is made evident, and in a splendid way, that Beauvarlet-Charpentier, Lasceux, Gervais-François Couperin, and fellows composers are worth (let’s state it with the risk of looking sacrilegious) Du Mage, Guilain, Boyvin and other Dandrieus.  A magnificent double CD, which has to be in every record collection.’
  (Guy Bovet, La Tribune de l’Orgue n° 49/3, September 1997)
