America the Beautiful/Washington National Cathedral Choir Sound from Heaven/Washington National Cathedral A Centennial Celebration/Washington National Cathedral
Recorded at Washington National Cathedral on October 7-8 and November 11-12, 2004, this CD weaves a tapestry of the American musical experience, broadly articulating the triumphs and travails, the emerging growth and diversity of the Nation, and defines a healthy sense of what is good about patriotism. 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. Music from Organists and Choirmasters at the Washington National Cathedral from 1907 to 2007.
