All of the published organ works of Dom Paul Benoit are still available. The published organ works of Dom Paul Benoit, originally available as 22 editions, are now contained in 12 editions involving three publishers:  Editions Combre, CCP/Belwin, and Art Sacré Clervaux.  Yet, "His published scores do not even represent half of his production" ...liner notes, p.18, from the 2 CD recording set "NATIVITÉ  ET  PACQUES  à l´abbaye de Clervaux, Dom Paul Benoît (1893-1979),  L´œuvre complète pour orgue".

Much gratitude to Leon Kerremans, Organist of the Church of Saint-Servais in Brussels for the original source information, address, and the  list of Dom Paul Benoit's organ compositions.  This current version was supplied by both Claude Christnach of Musek Wolf in Luxembourg City and Roger Riblet of the Librairie Art Sacré at the Abbaye Saint-Maurice, Clervaux

Ordering information for MUSEK WOLF:
What is "Payment by bank SWIFT"?  It works like this. Assume that I am in Houston, Texas, U.S.A. with U.S. dollars wanting to pay for an order in Luxembourg with Luxembourg Francs (or Euros).   The music dealer in Luxembourg e-mails/faxes me the cost of my order with the destination SWIFT account name and number to which my payment will  be sent.  I merely go to my bank's funds transfer window and write a check, or charge my credit card, for the amount in U.S. dolars, plus a  fee for the SWIFT service. The payment ends up at its destination in the account of the music dealer,  in Luxembourg Francs (or EUROS).  SWIFT stands for Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Transactions. The current prices, as of February 2001, of individual editions will vary from around $21 EURO down to around $ 6 EURO ( $1 EURO = $0.931 US );  to purchase all twelve editions listed above, including shipping costs from Luxembourg City to Houston Texas USA for a 2.7 Kg package, was about $162 US (the included shipping was about $22.56 US);  prices subject to change;  this example does not include the bank SWIFT fee. To dial internationally  from the U.S. you will first dial 011 then the numbers as listed on this page.
