Litany for the organ

Yesterday, organist Marie-Claire Alain passed away at the age of 86. Her oldest brother, Jehan Alain, who died in combar in WWII, was an organist as well, and a composer too. I hereby share with you his Litanies for organ, played by Marie-Claire Alain. May this be my litany to the world; that the organists in this world may never extinct, because there is so much beautiful music written for this instrument! If there is such a thing as heaven, the organ is the bell you ring at the gates.
