Having previously served as associate director of music, Renée Anne Louprette is no stranger to St Ignatius Loyola in New York and its French- inspired instrument from British firm Mander. She returns with an exciting recording of French repertoire. The second suite of Vierne’s Pièces de fantaisie sits alongside some less familiar pieces by Ibert, André Isoir and Nadia Boulanger. Isoir’s only organ composition, Variations sur un psaume huguenot, is a particularly vibrant exploration of neo-baroque sounds. Louprette plays with grace and charm as well as seemingly effortless virtuosity. Twenty-five years since its installation, this organ still captivates with its uniquely French voice in New York.
