Sound from Heaven/Washington National Cathedral Les Corps Glorieux/Andrews
This recording brings together a splendid tapestry of music from the Franco-Belgian tradition, including traditional Gregorian chant, monody from the Notre Dame Conductus which flourished in Paris circa 1200, and the medieval "Messe de Tournai." This music is paired with the excerpts from the Pentecost Mass for organ by Olivier Messiaen, the 20th century Roman Catholic mystic; also Messiaen's choral motet, "O Sacrum Convivium," and music from the Cathedral's 53-bell carillon. Colin Andrews, a large Fisk organ, and the acoustics of St. Paulís Episcopal Church in Greenville, NC, are the ideal ensemble for Messiaenís most popular organ work, the Ascension Suite, and his evocative Mass for Pentecost. (Part of the Complete Organ Works of Messiaen by Colin Andrews -- LRCD-1163)
