20 Pieces for Organ

“Considered by his contemporaries as one of the most brilliant organ composers, he published his 20 Pieces in 1862 just before Franck’s Six Pieces. Their popularity is evident in that they were reprinted in 1866, 1894 and 1896. A modern edition is long overdue.”
(Paul Hale, Organists’ Review, February 1996)

“The 20 Pieces are elegantly edited. The interest for these pieces is beyond all question. We wish this interesting publication a favourable issues.”
(J. Ferrard, Magazine de l’Orgue no. 9, June 1994)

“The 20 Pieces benefited of several editions and have been considered until the end of the 19th century as a major work. The music written by Chauvet deserves the best place, what the 20 Pieces proves.”
(L’Orgue no. 228, 4th quarter 1993)

XV Preparatory Studies to Bach's works

“A didactic curiosity of some value is presented by the reissue of an 1867 volume by A. Chauvet entitled XV Preparatory Studies to Bach's works, a product of the mid 19th century’s rediscovery of baroque music. F. Sabatier has done a splendid job of re-editing these easy Inventions, each about a page long. They fill a gap between Bach’s own Little Preludes and Fugues and the Two-Part Inventions.”
(Classical piano, May-June 1995)

9 Graded Offertories for Advent and Christmas-tide — Various Pieces

“Alexis Chauvet, a student of François Benoist and Ambroise Thomas at the Paris Conservatoire, holded positions as an organist in several parisian churches, such the Trinity. He got a nickname as ‘little Bach’, that he used to play on many occasions. He was a friend of Franck, who dedicated the Fantaisie in C major to him.
“The compositions by Chauvet shows a fully elegant writing close to the classical French, but modernized with new and subtle harmonies.
“This edition is neatly engraved and includes editorial notes. Original bending.”

(A. Macinanti, Arte oraganaria e organistica, no. 29, September-October 1999)
