NEW MUSIC FOR ORGAN [coll] [Nonesuch]

cujo   8/20/2012   A Library

“In the daily lives of most men and women, fear plays a greater part than hope”

organist William Albright playing (on UMich’s huge organ):

Side A: Bolcom’s “Black Host” for organ, percussion, and tape
Deep dark metal organ. Your dance of death, by the way, is organ droning a minor chord at full stop while a bass drum wails.

Side B: His own “Organbook II” for organ, and tape
Less apocalyptic, more organic, still obliquely satanic.

Spectacular doomy brilliant end-of-days shit. Can we add more organ music to the library already?
