Widor Agnus Dei

Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937)

Charles-Marie Widor was a French organist, composer, and teacher.  He wrote works for various instruments and ensembles.  He is mostly known today for his ten organ symphonies.

Here is the Agnus Dei from Widor’s Mass op.36 for choir and organ.  It is performed by the Schola Cantorum of Saint Agnes based in New York City.  James D. Wetzel is the organist and choirmaster.  David Enlow is the guest organist.  The music is very skillfully composed.  Listen to how the voices meld together  and how well the organ accompaniment fits and provides a mood for the piece.  Enjoy!
