From Messe pour les Paroisses: played by Andre Marchal (organ)
From St. Margaret's. Westminster
Andre Marchal. one of the finest organists of our day. has triumphed over the handicap of being blind from birth. Born in Paris in 1894, he studied at the Conservatoire, where he obtained the first prize for organ-playing. When he was twenty-one he was appointed organist of Saint Germain-des-Prés; a few years ago he succeeded Joseph Bopnet at Saint-Eustache. He first visited England in 1935 and 1936, and on each occasion extemporised a symphony on themes submitted by well-known composers. H.R.
