The performance style here is essentially late Romantic, in the tradition of the great cathedral organs, especially the French improvisatory practice in the first part of the 20th century (Tournemire et al.). There is little connection to medieval music here, but the third piece does treat a theme by Machaut, although not in a way the average listener can easily perceive.
