hidden treasures

by Jim D. on 5/9/2010

There was a time when Gregorian chant was a living element of Catholic worship, not a curiosity practised by monks in recording studios. Charles Tournemire's "L'Orgue Mystique" could quote that music in the expectation that listeners would recognize the themes being used. Those days are gone, and to miss the quotations is to lose appreciation for his treatment of the melodies. For this disc, all the relevant chants for Easter and for the Ascension are performed along with the organ pieces. Most are rather meditative, but the last one for each feast lets out many of the stops. I'd like a little information on the instrument played by Harald Feller, but it's not here--nor are English translations of the chants. Otherwise, the notes are good, and include an essay by composer Olivier Messiaen.
