Chapelle des morts
Tu es petra et portae inferi non praevalebunt adversus te
Esquisses Byzantines is a set of ten pieces of religious music for Organ. Composed by Henri Mulet¸ these pieces are considered as difficult, ideally for advanced players. They all use pedals.
The beginning of the set is dedicated to the late Montmartre Basilique (1914-1919) and each name of the ten pieces describes either a part of the Basilique or another religious reference. These pieces are: I. Nef, II. Vitrail, III. Rosace, IV. Chapelle des morts, V. Campanile, VI. Procession, VII. Chant funèbre, VIII. Noël, IX. In Paradisum, X. Tu es petra et portae inferi non praevalebunt adversus te.
