Offenbach - St-Chrone de Neant
"Finally! The complete legendary show from L'Oratoire St-Joseph, recorded November 30th, 1972. This first CD edition includes 7 previously unreleased recordings performed during the show (including the composition "Fils de lumiËre" which sees the light of day for the first time anywhere) as well as the complete version of "La Chaconne en Sol Majeur", plus a 16-page booklet chock full of photos! With their gothic tendancies and Gregorian-styled harmonies, Offenbach's music from that era (augmented by the choir Les Chanteurs de la Gamme D'Or) fits quite well with the Mass of the Dead. From the opening organ piece to the final notes of the last encore, relive this show / this mass which clearly demonstrates Offenbach's progressive side."
