Results for Henri Mulet :
Mulet composed the significant part of his output for the symphonic organ. His mélodies and some compositions for orchestra, piano and even harpsichord are forgotten today ("Des Poèmes Symphoniques", "Fantaisie Pastorale", "Petite Suite", "Le Talion"). His output for the organ is expressive in a post-Romantic manner. The "Esquisses byzantines" (1914–19) are his most often played works; They form a group of ten pieces half of them inspired by various parts of the Sacré-Coeur basilica (Titles are: Nef, Vitrail, Rosace, Chapelle des Mortes, Campanile, Procession, Chant funebre, Noel, In Paradisum, Tu es petra). The also popular "Carillon Sortie" was written before 1912 and was dedicated to Joseph Bonnet.
