About the album
• Canadian organist Vincent Boucher returns with Le Livre de Noëls, a collection of carols for organ by French composer
Louis Claude Daquin on the Beckerath organ at St. Joseph’s Oratory in Montréal.
• In the 17th century, and even more so in the 18th, organ variations on well-known noëls (Christmas carols) were
much appreciated in France. Today, it is hard for us to realize how popular Louis Claude Daquin (1694-1772) was,
however he was lionized by noble and bourgeois Paris during his lifetime.
