"All these aspects of his life and art, including the rigorous training and arduous practice that transformed a blind peasant boy into a superb musician, his lifelong friendship with Olivier Messiaen, his sometimes turbulent family life, and the body of works he left - only J. S. Bach wrote more compositions for the organ - are narrated and analyzed by Ann Labounsky, who is uniquely qualified to write this definitive biography. A favorite Langlais pupil, she was asked by Langlais himself to write it and had his full cooperation for numerous long interviews over many years."--BOOK JACKET.

The Recueil de morceaux d’orgue à l’usage spécial des élèves de l’Institution impériale des jeunes aveugles de Paris (1863), held in the collection of the Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind in Louisville, Kentucky, contains fifty-four organ compositions in braille music notation written by four blind organist-composers who taught at the Institution des Jeunes Aveugles in Paris: Gabriel Gauthier (1808–53), Marius Gueit (1808–ca. 1865), Julien Héry (1820–98), and Victor Paul (1835–1902). Gauthier and Gueit had been fellow students, friends, and colleagues of Louis Braille (1809–52) at the school around the time Braille was first developing his six-dot writing system. The Recueil de morceaux d’orgue is divided into four parts: Les harmonies religieuses, a collection of descriptively titled pieces by Gauthier that had appeared previously in ink print around 1853; Dix-huit offertoires de divers auteurs, featuring pieces for the offertory by Gauthier and Gueit; Douze morceaux de fonds de divers auteurs, including pieces by Gauthier and Héry; and Treize morceaux de fonds et offertoires avec pédale ad libitum, featuring pieces by Gauthier, Héry, and Paul for use in the liturgy. All of the pieces in the first three parts, as well as three pieces in part 4, may be played on manuals only and are thus suitable for harmonium as well as organ. The remaining ten works in part 4 call for the use of pedal.

This is the first book on the French composer Jean Langlais to be published in English and also the first to provide complete information on all of his published works plus 86 unplubished compositions, and eleven orchestral works. This book traces Langlais' development from his early years of study at the National Institute for the Young Blind, through his long and active career as composer, church musician, and concert organist, and explores the impact that Langlais' hard work, determination, and talent have had on the musical world. It is divided into five major sections, including a biography, interviews, works and performances, a discography, and a bibliography. Listing 240 compositions written between 1927 and 1987, and containing a complete discography of both commercially produced and privately released recordings, the major portion of this volume is an annotated bibliography of writings by and about Langlais, with 536 entries, covering the years from 1926 to 1987, when he celebrated his eightieth birthday. Categories include general references, individual compositions, improvisations, reviews of recordings, nonprint sources, and archive information. There is valuable information on premieres, reactions to Langlais' works and performances, recital programs, and correspondence. The opus numbers, recently completed by Marie-Louise Jaquet-Langlais, the composer's wife, are published here for the first time in a chronological list of compositions, and the index section covers works, authors and translators, and general information.
