A monumental acheivement---Colin Andrews is one of only a handful of organists that has recorded Messiaen's complete works for organ. This recording is also the first of Messiaen's complete works to be recorded on American organs, both built by C. B. Fisk.  "Andrews is a master at capturing the grandeur, spaciousness and reverence of this music, and he offers new and compelling interpretations. He is not afraid to explore what Messiaen himself described as ‘extremely delicate variations of rhythm and tempo’ – inflections that are intensely personal, impossible to notate or replicate and are frequently captivating. The enormous variety of touches called for across the cycle are worthy of mention, most notably a wonderfully smooth legato...The recording quality is excellent, with Roger Sherman from Loft expertly negotiating the challenge of recording organs in resonant rooms, balancing clarity with spaciousness...Highly recommended." - Sydney Organ Journal Intended as his final major work for organ, Messiaen's "Meditations on the Mystery of the Holy Trinity" is the culmination of his lifetime work as a composer for the organ. Begun as a set of improvisations celebrating the renovation of the organ at Trinity (and the church's 100th anniversary),  "Meditations" employs new musical languages to explore the mysteries of Christian faith. (Part of The Complete Organ Works of Olivier Messiaen by Colin Andrews, LRCD-1163) "Livre du Saint Sacrement" is a summation of Messiaen's musical and theological persona, a statement of faith and a profound summary of his entire organ "oeuvres". Here he employs the significant compositional techniques of his life's work: modes of limited transposition, Hindu rhythms, Greek rhythms, plainsong, birdsong, "communicable language", and serialism. These elements are used to explore the mysteries of Christian faith, in this, his most massive work for organ.  (Part of The Complete Organ Works of Olivier Messiaen by Colin Andrews, LRCD-1163)
