In this survey of music by the French Roman Catholic mystic, Olivier Messiaen, Jonathan Dimmock plays some of his popular works, and also includes two rarely performed compositions, published only afer his death in 1992. The organ used for this recording is very similar in size and disposition to Messiaen's own instrument at Trinité in Paris. The performance, the organ and Erik Sikkema's ULSI recording technology combine to produce an unusual and exceptional CD. Recorded on the spectacular Holzhey organ at Weißenau Abbey (Bavaria)—an organ which Mendelssohn loved—these Sonatas synthesize Baroque and Classical style with Romantic sentiment, establishing the musical vocabulary later used by Schumann, Brahms and Liszt. Regarded as having one of the most beautiful organ cases in the world, the 1738 Christian Müller organ at the Bavokerk in Haarlem speaks nobly into one of the great acoustical environments of Europe. With 60 speaking stops, it was the largest organ in the world when built. Played on by Handel, the ten-year-old Mozart, Mendelssohn and countless other musicians over the past 275 years, this instrument continues to impress those fortunate enough to hear and play it. Grammy Award winner Jonathan Dimmock has recorded more than 35 CDs and concertized extensively on six continents. This recording features some of Bach's most popular works, including the famous Toccata in d minor.

Known as the “Orpheus of Amsterdam,” Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck was the greatest single influence on the succeeding generation of north European organists and composers, including H. Scheidemann, J. Praetorius II, M. Schildt, and both Samuel and Gottfried Scheidt.

Jonathan Dimmock brings these influential works to life on three landmark mean-tone organs in Holland and Sweden.
