In the 1930s the Late Romantic outsider Rued Langgaard (1893-1952) concentrated on a single composition: Messis, a visionary organ drama of the end of the world. As one of the most expansive works in the organ literature it is also a compendium of a vanished Romantic era which goes to the heart of Langgaard's religious view of art. In tenebras exteriores (Buried in Hell) from 1947 builds further on Messis, but in this case it is Langgaard's sarcastic pessimism that predominates.

This is one of the finest organ recordings I have heard; and with such rare and rewwarding, largely romantic sounds, it is to be highly recommended.
