Tom Winpenny continues his highly successful series of Messiaen recordings with two major works which perhaps exemplify the difference between pre- and post-war musical ideals: the exotically colourful Les corps glorieux of 1939 followed by the more modernist Messe de la Pentecôte of 1949-50. The newly renovated organ of Hildesheim Cathedral by Seifert provides an ideal tonal palette captured with both clarity and majestic space. Winpenny is on excellent form and his performances are to be highly commended.
