About

Three of Messiaen’s most passionate vocal masterworks are presented on this CD, from the visionary Trois petites liturgies de la Présence divine (Three Small Liturgies of the Divine Presence) (1934) and the popular O sacrum convivium (1937) to the extraordinary – and extraordinarily difficult – Cinq Rechants (Five Refrains) (1948).

The internationally renowned choir conductor Marcus Creed is joined for this all Messiaen program by three of Denmark’s greatest musical treasures: the Danish National Concert Choir, Danish National Vocal Ensemble and the Danish National Chamber Orchestra, in addition to internationally acclaimed soloists Marianna Shirinyan (piano) and Thomas Bloch (ondes martenot).

An essential disc featuring some of the most hypnotically beautiful and transcendent music of the last century.
