Not to mention the participation of the male voice choir Les Chantres musiciens under the direction of Gilbert Patenaude, who will perform Gregorian themes that inspired two works by Charles Tournemire.

Vincent Boucher will also take the opportunity to release a compilation album under label Atma Classique: Vincent Boucher à l'orgue which includes works by Bach, Daquin, Pärt, Scarlatti, Tournemire, Tomasi and Vivaldi.
