As this is the first of the three improvisations (not just published as such in 1954 but so intended by the composer) (as per Frazier, p.135, who gives December, not November, 1928 for composition date, but perhaps that's the date for all 3 combined), then it should be moved to a workpage "3 Improvisations (Vierne, Louis)" (site rules, with some exceptions for certain major collection-group-works...) rather than having a workpage all its lonesome. Will do so unless reason can be found to the contrary?...
This improvisation ("Marche épiscopale") was recorded on November 17, 1928, it was released in January of 1930 -after- the other improvisation(s) (references: IHORC, Jean-Michel Louchard). It exists a fourth Improvisation (transcribed by Jean-Michel Louchard, 2005). So a common workpage "Improvisations (Vierne, Louis)" would make more sense, if someone wants to move this Marche épiscopale.
