Five works for organ have been commissioned to five composers by the association « Renaissance of the Organ of Basilica St Remi, Reims » in 2011, in the context of the 800 years of the foundation of Reims Cathedral (1211-2011). These works have been inspired by the five hymns of the « Organ Book » by Nicolas De Grigny (1699), a famous organist of Reims cathedral, during the era of Louis XIV. Works by Thierry Escaich, Pierre Farago, Benoît Mernier, Jean-Baptiste Robin and Vincent Paulet have been created on the Cattiaux organ (2000) of Basilica St Remi, Reims, between 2011 and 2014. The project is completed by the audio recording of these works along with the hymns of Grigny so that its should be widely and internationally released and circulated, through a quality label, during 2016.
