“In my eyes and ears the organ will forever be the king of instruments.” – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Michel Corrette (1707 – 1795) was a French organist, composer and author of books on musical theory and practice. A prolific composer, Corrette composed ballets and divertissements for the stage, and many concertos, notably 25 Concertos Comiques. Aside from these works and concertos for organ, he also composed sonatas, songs, chamber works, harpsichord pieces, cantatas and other sacred vocal works.

Here are the six Op. 26 Organ Concertos. François-Henri Houbart plays the organ of Notre Dame des Blancs-Manteaux.
