Mass for double choir a cappella / Songs of Ariel. With Messiaen : Cinq rechants

RIAS Kammerchor, Daniel Reuss
    • Apple Music

    Frank Martin and Olivier Messiaen have few musical features in common, but their faith overrides the fundamental differences between them and makes them two of the most important Christian composers of the twentieth century. Martin’s Mass for unaccompanied double choir is the profoundly ecumenical profession of faith of a fervent Christian of our time. As to the Cinq Rechants, Messiaen’s last a cappella work, its composer rightly thought it ‘one of [his] best works’.

    This title was released for the first time in 2004.
