As he and two colleagues explain at length in the liner booklet, this musical portrait of Giulio Mercati, organist of the parish church of Santa Maria degli Angioli in Lugano, Switzerland, is essentially an exploration of how expressiveness and originality in liturgical music can be achieved by fusing classical tradition and modern inventiveness. It presents a series of pieces written over a number of years, for ‘spiritual concerts and meditation meetings’, setting or reflecting a selection of mainly Marian texts. I found the concept interesting and the music very appealing but would like to hear the choral works performed by more accomplished singers.
