As part of this parish’s Lenten observance, we are presenting Jon Gillock’s performance of Olivier Messiaen’s Book of the Holy Sacrament on Tuesday, March 5. This was Messiaen’s final work for organ, and is without question one of the most important works of music composed in the 20th Century. Some of the movements are meditations on Christ’s life, others on the Eucharist. Attending a performance of this piece is a major spiritual journey.
