Most of the 12 pieces in this collection are suited for concert use and a
few for church service. This was Bonnet’s third set of twelve pieces
and the best known because of the first one in the set, “In memoriam
).” The other pieces are just as interesting, though, and
technically sound. The 7 versets of “Magnificat” are often
heard with the chant sung in between.
- In memoriam (Titanic)
- Moment musical
- Angelus du soir
- Pisen Ceskeho Naroda

hired him to help Harold Gleason at the new Eastman School of Music. He began
the organ department at the Conservatory of Montreal. He wrote about 40 organ
pieces and edited many collections of organ music. Moderate to Difficult.
