Alas, no recording seems to exist of this extraordinary music from Huré’s opera La Cathédrale, in which all twelve notes of the chromatic scale sound simultaneously, in advance of Berg’s Altenberg Lieder (though not, to be sure, of Jean-Paul-Égide Martini’s Sapho). I can find almost no information about the work. Was it based on the Huysmans novel?
