Frederik Magle – Anastasis-Messe (CD)


In stock

Anastasis-Messe, by composer, organist and entrepreneur Frederik Magle, is a monumental and very contemporary bid for an old classically rooted music form: The mass.

An epic musical tale that let us enter Magle’s amazing universe with bright heavenly women voices, deep electronic sounds from both wind and string instruments, rousing drummer sounds, a terrific sound of Didgeridoo, bringing the mind to the Aborigines from Australia, a contemporary sound of rock music’s specific characteristics with drum kit and electric guitar: all this combined into powerful music that strives for all corners of the world.

It is an intoxicating sound universe put into the Danish high-mass form. Listeners are being led on a safe and warm journey to experience music where past and present reach each other – one has simply become another after the meeting with the Anastasis-Messe.

A Danish masterpiece created for today’s people.
