Who was Joseph Lauber?

Wikipedia tells us he was a Swiss composer who studied organ with Joseph Rheinberger and composition with Jules Massenet.  He then headed up a theatre in Geneva and wrote loads of music.

But have you ever heard this music? Not I, until this most luxurious album came into my mailbox. I must say I can’t decipher a name for the CD beyond Joseph Lauber 1864–1952. And finding anything about the performers or the project itself proved mightily difficult. But this is one of the most beautiful finds I have made in a long while.
