Review

A mine of information. . . . a veritable tale of our times. MUSICAL TIMES (Andrew Thomson)BR Provides significant insight into Durufle's works and the relatively secretive life he and his wife led. . . . Frazier's research is excellent. . . . An important contribution. CHOICE (Brian Doherty) Frazier's exploration of arabesque in architecture and music and his treatment of musical luminosity are memorably insightful and reveal a thoughtful understanding of Durufle's work. . . . An interesting and well-constructed view of Durufle's world, and a highly informative text as well. CHOIR & ORGAN (Steven Plank) A work of unprecedented scope and depth, . . . (Frazier's book) is a biography abundantly rich in detail; though it declines the tone of a hagiography, it is obviously a labor of love. . . . Frazier skillfully illuminates the contexts in which Durufle's life unfolded . . . (and) Frazier's survey of Durufle's compositions is particularly strong. . . . A special pleasure of the book is the chapter on (Durufle's future wife, and a world-renowned organist, ) Marie-Madeleine Chevalier . . . Frazier's book will no doubt stand as a defining work in Durufle scholarship and nurture scholars of 20th-century French organ music for years to come. AMERICAN ORGANIST (Lawrence Archbold) One of the best musical biographies I have read for many years: sound in musical and, for the most part, in historical judgment . . ., sympathetic without being sycophantic, and most gracefully written. Durufle deserves no less. GRAMOPHONE (Roger Nichols) (Frazier) sees Durufle as a compelling figure, given over to the same foibles and doubts we all have. Frazier's ability to obtain primary sources lends credence to his observations. This is a superb work, one to be valued by usic historians and organists alike. AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Jan/Feb 2008 (Donald Metz) This substantial study . . . although sympathetic . . . is not a work of hagiography. . . .(The author argues that) the somewhat short-lived revival of Gregorian chant in the French church . . . (during) Durufle's composing life was a happy coincidence from which music was the main beneficiary (notably through the widely beloved Requiem). . . . The very considerable value of this booklies in its personal evaluation of a man whose personality is likely to remain something of a mystery but whose music has already transcended his life. TEMPO (Bret Johnson)
