Milhaud also wrote a small body of work for organ. A beautiful Pastorale, dated 1941, is played by Graham Barber on a Priory disc (PRCD 391, 1991) on the Sandtner organ of Villingen Minster. The same work appears on one of the new Praga label Milhaud centenary discs (PR 250 008) in a good 1981 performance by Joachim Grubich. There is a third performance of the Pastorale on a disc by George Baker dedicated to the complete Milhaud organ works (Disques FY, FYCD 916, recorded 1974).
While the Pastorale is the best of these pieces, all are interesting: Petite suite (1955), Neuf préludes (1942), and especially the Sonate (1931), the last movement of which takes a kaleidoscopic look at a famous organ theme by Bach. Préludes 3, 7, and 8 are played very well if less contemplatively in a 1981 performance by Jaroslav Tvrzsky on Praga 250 013.
