A volume 225 x 310 « landscape ». 18-page. Preface in French and English.
Written in 1980 and dedicated to “In memory of Louis Vierne and in memory of Léonce de Saint-Martin”, this piece, without being entirely a pastiche, cannot fail to recall the style of the famous Westminster Carillon of Vierne, at the same time as that of his direct successor, Léonce de Saint-Martin, by certain harmonies and modulations concessions quite specific to the latter. Jean Steinmetz premiered the work on June 10th 1984 during a recital given on the prestigious Cavaillé-Coll in Notre-Dame de Paris.
