About the album

The World Premier recording of two of Naji Hakim’s latest works entitled Sakskøbing Præludier and Glenalmond Suite are performed by the composer himself in this fantastic collection of organ works. 

Hakim arranged this programme to articulate the timbres of the new 26 stop organ at Glenalmond College, including works by Grigny, Boëllmann and Franck as well as opening with Te Deum, one of the most famous pieces by Jean Langlais.  

"I chose the repertoire for the opening recital of the Glenalmond College instrument having in mind the stylistic flexibility and great elegance of Harrison & Harrison organs. As 2007 was the centenary year of my master and friend Jean Langlais, I decided to open the programme with one of his most famous pieces - Te Deum - on the Tutti of the organ, followed by works of Grigny, Boëllmann and Franck, articulating the programme to put in relief the colours of the instrument, such as mutations, flutes, voix céleste, foundations and reeds. The Sakskøbing Præludier, based on Danish hymns, are the prolongation of my credo, and, along with the Glenalmond Suite, are recorded here for the very first time." - Naji Hakim, 2008
