Olivier Messiaen: Messe de la Pentecôte

Laurence Carden, Anna Lapwood & Dāvids Heinze, organ

Messiaen's thrilling organ mass draws on his own improvisations as well as his love of Indian and Greek rhythms and birdsong. Its five movements vividly evoke Pentecostal themes: tongues of fire, things visible and invisible, the gift of Wisdom, birds and streams; the wind of the Spirit. This colourful music is ideally suited to the magnificent Létourneau organ of Selwyn College Chapel.
