Commentary:Each of Journeau's works had been already recorded by the same artists in independent CDs. We find them again among the selected recent works for this anthology. Exceptionally the "Prière à la Vierge" intended by the composer for soprano voice and organ has been unexpectedly played by the violinist for the voice part (but the result is very beautiful).
