Daniel Bruun clearly has great affection for Vierne’s colourful suite of 24 pieces. The 2015 Carsten Lund organ is built in French symphonic style and, while modest in size, has the complete palette of sounds for these works. Yes, we may lack the Gothic ambience of a large cathedral to enhance pieces like Fantômes, but there is a beguiling intimacy to these performances enhanced by some beautifully understated playing. The only curiosity is a clanging wrong note at the end of the Carillon de Westminster. Otherwise, this is a fine recording augmented by Bruun’s informative sleeve notes.
