Voluntary Carillon de Westminster Louis Vierne (1870-1937)

He was teacher to Marcel Dupré, who eventually taught St. John’s longtime organist Clarence Watters. This voluntary is presented as a prayer for Paris, and for people around the world who find solace and peace in God-given houses of worship.
