French composer, Jean-Louis Florentz (1947-2004) was a prolific student of Olivier Messiaen. La Croix Du Sud, composed in 1999-2000, is an exciting addition to the Organ repertoire.
Florentz's music is described as having "a strong, evocative power which keeps the clarity of the French style." La Croix Du Sud is a symphonic poem for Organ and a typical lasts about 17 minutes. It is a virtuosic and modern piece, yet provides organists with an exciting, alternative performance work.
For all advanced organists seeking to vary their repertoire, Florentz's La Croix Du Sud makes for an exciting addition to the repertoire.
