Camille Saint-Sa"ens / Martin Setchell
In stock


This is a wonderful collection of popular and some less well-known pieces. It contains three movements from The Carnival of the Animals, the slow movement and the famous Maestoso section from the 'Organ' Symphony (No. 3), the meltingly beautiful aria 'Softly awakes my heart' from the opera Samson and Delilah, the opening section of the Danse Macabre, and several other pieces illustrating the range of Saint-Sa"ens' compositional style. All the pieces are immensely playable and have been chosen to suit the needs of both church and concert organists.
