I'm assuming you are referring to the organ, which Selma beat you to the punch.

Is the work one of the Trois Chorals?

Is it all 3 considered as one work?

25. Is the work one of the Trois Chorals? No

26. Is it all 3 considered as one work? No (this could be considered as a guess, but I'll allow it as a question)

27. No. It is not technically classified as chamber music. To me, anything with more than 1 instrument but less than what would be considered orchestral could be identifiable as chamber music.

3 more questions! :wink:

I'll elabarote a bit on that. It is a work originally created as its own, and is often performed on it's own. However, this work was eventually used as a replacement to a portion/part within a larger work of Franck's.
