Messiaen: O sacrum convivium
Recorded April 2003 at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts
Stunning in its perceived simplicity, but a legendarily challenging work to perform successfully, Messiaen’s miniature ‘O Sacrum Convivium’ was performed on an all-French program for Radio-Canada in 2003. The breathless work features rich chords and smooth lines, well suited to musica intima’s trademark warm choral sound.
