This is my rendition of the Écho movement from Denis Bédard's Suite du deuxième ton. Over the next few posts, I will be showcasing each movement from this modern take on the French Classical repertoire. This was recorded on the St. Pons-de-Thomières, Micot Organ (1771) from Sonus Paradisi.
Silly me...I uploaded the Écho movement before the Récit! This is movement IV...sorry, I skipped the Gavotte. I will upload it next time. The Écho is pretty self explanatory—it alternates between two registrations, that being the Voix Humaine (buzzy reed stop) and the Bourdon. I always get a little giggle at the end of the piece when I perform this in public. Make sure you listen right up until the end to see why :)
