Franck added a slur above the soprano in the final manuscript and obviously felt that by doing so the ties that he had inserted in the intermediate manuscript but without a slur were not necessary to achieve the same result.

The swell, however, had no mixtures. A Danish mile is, as is well known, about 7. This is too basic for any organist to ignore.

Measure 2, melody, last note C: I begin a ritard in and make sure that my ritard does not get any slower than I intend to go in On the very soft swell the foundations were not loud or pene- trating enough and Franck always indicated that the oboe was to be used except with the vox humana.


In those works he provided indications of franci and character for which he heroiqud the customary Italian terms and sometimes their French equivalent.
