Suite du Premier Ton[edit]

Movement V of Suite du Premier Ton (Suite in C major) from Louis-Nicolas Clérambault's 1710 set of compositions, Livre d'Orgue, performed by Ashtar Moïra.

A fine performance of a piece by a notable 18th-century organist.

Movement V of Suite du Premier Ton (Suite in C major) from Louis-Nicolas Clérambault's 1710 set of compositions, Livre d'Orgue, performed by Bastien Milanese.

Another fine performance, on a different organ.

  • Nominate and support either or both. Adam Cuerden (talk) 20:12, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Support what a delightful performance. Very high quality recording. —Ancient ApparitionChampagne? • 5:46pm • 07:46, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
    • I'll leave a message on your talk page. It's been pointed out we have two, and both are very good. 17:27, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Support both or either--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 13:57, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
  • I think both are very nice performances; if we really want to choose just one to feature, I prefer the first file, as the second sounds muddier (perhaps due to the characteristics of the room it was recorded in). Kat Walsh (spill your mind?) 02:31, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose Second The first is performed better than the second, which does have rather unfortunate pauses in between phrases and seems to be uncertain over some of its phrasing (eg 0:22-ish and 0:35-ish). However, I don't like the sound in the first, which if memory serves was done by the same person who did the now delisted Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. The key problem in the first one for me is that it sounds as though it has been done on an artificial organ on a computer with echo added later - the "Trumpet" noise which starts at around 0:28 sounds terribly artificial. There is no indication where it was recorded, which makes me suspicious. Weak oppose for the first tooMajor Bloodnok (talk) 14:30, 14 April 2011 (UTC)


This seems to be a close one

  • One: (Support: 4, Oppose: .5, Neutral: 0)
  • Two: (Support: 3, Oppose: 1, Neutral: 1)

Since one got more supports and less detractors I am going to promote that one. --Guerillero | My Talk 19:45, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
