During the nineteenth century, the organ profession in France and Belgium reached a new Golden Age. Orpha Ochse traces this remarkable rebirth through the careers of Saint-Saens, Franck, Gigout, Guilmant, and Widor and other influential figures: the historian Fotis, the publisher Durand, the pianist Alkan, and the composers Dubois, Gounod, FaurAc, and d'Indy. This period is significant not only as a slice of history but also because of its influence on organ playing in other countries. Countless American organists are the grand-pupils or great-grand-pupils of Widor or Guilmant, and for most of the twentieth century the Lemmens approach to organ playing dominated American organ pedagogy.
