The second book of Louis Vierne's pieces for Organ or Harmonium. Contains Nos. 13 to 24.

Playing around nine minutes, the longest piece in the collection, the obsessive, grimly grinding "Marche funèbre" (No. 18), takes one aback by a brief central chorale of stunningly glib optimism. Finally, there are the handful of brilliant showpieces without which no Vierne collection would be complete -- an elfin "Scherzetto" (No. 14), the dramatically careening, starkly powerful "Cortège" (No. 2), the virtuosic, "Divertissement" (No. 11), an animated "Carillon de Longpoint" (No. 21 -- one of the grandest of the several carillon evocations which dot Vierne's organ works), and the "Postlude" (No. 24) with its large, peremptory, conclusive gestures.
