Pilgrimages: Organ Music of Rachel Laurin / Brenda Portman, organ

Notes & Reviews:

Brenda Portman says the title "Pilgrimages" refers most tangibly to the third piece of this album, in which the listener embarks on four short pilgrimages to sacred sites in the Lorraine region of France. However, the remaining selections were also inspired by a wide variety of sacred theme, including a cathedral procession, a celebratory motet, a Gregorian hymn, the devil's laugh, and a vigorous psalm tune. The composer has brought each of these themes to life in a brilliant and descriptive way, using the full palette of colors on the organ. The listener may be swept into a different type of pilgrimage, a musical journey through time and space - one which brings wonder and awe, new revelations, and a brief respite from the demands of live.
