Dom-Paul Benoit

Dear Friends,

For this weekend's offertory, we will hear Aria by Dom-Paul Benoit (1893 - 1979). Benoit was a Benedictine monk, joining the order at the conclusion of the First World War. He studied both organ and composition, and served as organist for the Abbey at Clervaux. Benoit's Aria is very lyric in quality, and reflects his deep connection to the impressionist School.

Enjoy the music this weekend and stay well!
