The third in a series celebrating 50 years of the Flentrop organ at Saint Mark's Cathedral in Seattle! Trumpeter Fred Sautter and organist Roger Sherman team up to play both famous and infamous works for trumpet and organ. The Prince of Denmark, Purcell Trumpet Voluntary and the theme from Masterpiece Theatre are all here, along with famous solo works for organ: Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, the "Little" G minor Fugue, and Franck's Chorale in E major. Pilgrim Psalms by Ross Lee Finney is a collection of choral and organ works based on the Ainsworth Psalter, brought by the pilgrims to Plymouth in 1620, "these melodies are among america's greatest folk heritage, influencing sacred singing through each century." Finney's sympathetic settings retain the Psalter's appealing tunes and incorporate the Psalter's seventeenth-century English text.

The Harvard Choruses are directed by Andrew Clark in this first recording of Finney's important work.

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. The "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. Messiaen's Livre d'Orgue (1951) is a technical tour de' force, demonstrating his complete mastery of Viennese serial technique, while also incorporating complex Hindu rhythmic formula and bird songs. In addition there are several popular early works, "The Celestial Banquet" and "Apparition of the Eternal Church," and three recently discovered pieces that have been rarely heard.

Although most pieces in Bach's Orgelbuchlein are short-form works they are anything but unsophisticated. Packed with imaginative approaches to setting chorale melodies, this set of virtuosic gems is worthy of repeated hearings.

Joan Lippincott is especially well-known for her Bach performances on Gothic. Said Fanfare magazine, "Lippincott's wide variety of tempos, colors, and moods make this possibly the most enduring Art of Fugue ever recorded...highly recommended!"
