Religious and sensual, selfish yet humble, a loyal friend with a competitive streak, Langlais (1907-1991) was a complex and sometimes contradictory personality who was one of the glories of 20th-century French music. As scholar, organist, and a favorite pupil of her subject, Ann Labounsky provides the biography of this famous blind organist and composer, for 40+ years the organist at St-Clotilde in Paris, maintaining the deeply spiritual musical legacy of his predecessors Franck and Tournemire. 392pp hardbound
