Notes & Reviews:

His whole life, with imperturbable regularity, Olivier Messiaen played the liturgical organ at the Trinity Church (Paris). His Whitsun Mass, however, is his only organ work explicitly tied to the mass. Xavier Darasse's Organum VIII is impregnated with vivid, almost blinding colors in a complex rhythm, striking by its unusual instrumentation: a quintet of brass and organ, homage to the long resonances and the dynamic leaps of the brass. Three Inventions by Gilbert Amy are unquestionably among the most beautiful organ works of recent years. Their sonority and registrations frequently evoke the aesthetic of the classical organ. Their composition - brilliant, warm, and extremely varied - requires the interpreter to combine rhythmic precision with general flexibility. François Espinasse, official co-organist of Saint Séverin church in Paris and first-prizewinner in organ in Xavier Darasse's class, finished his training with André Isoir.
