Guillaume Lasceux (1740 1831) is one of the outstanding characters of the French post-classical organ.  He used to be the organist of the church of Saint-Etienne du Mont in Paris during sixty years.  Besides his numerous publications, he left several unpublished manuscripts of highest interest.  Among his works, which remained in the shade for a long time, one may find amazing pieces as the large Quatuor (quartet), splendid Voix humaines (Lasceux is a great specialist of this type of piece), or pulsating Grands-churs which make a wide use of all keyboards.
Chanvrelin also issued another volume by Lasceux, his Noëls for the organ (see our catalog).
