Charles-Marie Widor  (1844-1937)
Symphony no. 5 in f minor, Op. 42, No. 1  (1879)  

     I. Allegro vivace
    II. Allegro cantabile
    III. Andantino quasi allegretto
    IV. Adagio
    V. Toccata

Charles-Marie Widor was a French organist, composer, and teacher. Coming of age when the famed organ builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll was reaching his height, Widor was hired in 1870 as a temporary organist at the church of St. Sulpice in Paris, where Cavaillé-Coll had recently finished building his most ambitious instrument to date. Widor retained this “temporary” post until he retired over sixty years later, becoming a permanent fixture of the 19th-century French organ school. A prolific composer, Widor wrote a great deal of music for orchestra, chamber ensembles, piano solo, sacred and secular choral works, and a variety of stage music, including a ballet and four operas. He is most well-known today for his ten organ symphonies, works which took full advantage of the new possibilities offered by Cavaillé-Coll’s instruments. It is unusual for a work for solo instrument to be called a “symphony”. Widor’s choice of the word reflects the scope of possibilities offered by the revival of organ building and organ music in 19th Century France.

The Spiritual Wisdom of Saint John XXIII: Powerful Insights, Simple Practices, Heartfelt Prayers
By Bill Huebsch
The Spiritual journey that brought Angelo Roncalli to the papacy, to conceiving the
Second Vatican Council, and eventually to canonization in the Catholic Church
was a lifelong pursuit of holiness.
In this prayerful book we come to know him intimately through his own writings and
prayers. We share his inner thoughts – his joys and accomplishments, as well as
his disappointments and pain. It is clear to see though the events of his life,
how his greatest desire became “peace andunity” not only for the Catholic
Church, but for all people of the world – Christians and non-Christians alike. Saint
John XXIII has come to be known by many as the “Good Pope John”.
