Apart from any stylistic consideration, the 25 Voluntaries, composed from 1832 to 1834, are made more interesting by the fact that they constitute an original departure in a genre which, while already well developped for the piano, had not been yet caught on for the organ.
The pieces contained in this edition are stored in the National Library in manuscript form and in the New York Public Library in printed form.
The music will sound well on all Cavaillé-Coll’s instruments (a craftsman staunchly supported by Neukomm), and other symphonic instruments and on any neo-classical organ.
