Pierre Henry - Messe pour le temps présent

Pierre Henry's Messe pour le temps présentt (1967) is one of the earliest contemporary classical works to take on a rock influence. The piece sounds like "go-go" music with avantgarde instrumentation and effects. It's quite fun, actually!

Messe pour le temps présent has been released many times on vinyl and CD, but all releases are out of print. This is a vinyl rip, so the audio quality ain't the best. If somebody has a CD rip, let me know.

I just came across this somewhere else, let me check to see if it is a CD rip. I bought the 'bonus' disc seperate of remixes (William Orbit's is more Henry than Henry with his remix), if it is out of print also I will offer it up as well ;-)

Thanks for this amazing blog!
Diamanda Galas is just what I want to hear this week! :)
(I've been seeing YouTuve stuff about her... And she's incredible)

PS. Does anyone knows that György Ligeti has died?

I had this from the library a year ago. I made a mistake with the coverart, though: I put in the cover of the 1997 reissue, which has 'La Reine verte' on it; whereas it should be the 1989 edition on Philips Classics (with the red band on top). On it are Messe and Le Voyage

To Stallio, try Astarte's version above, that's the one I downloaded with no problems at all. Also, greetings from a small world.

To PC, unfortunately Ligeti did die (RIP).

As i mentioned by my post, the original CD issue is less different from the vynil issue (more or less tracks, especially for 'la reine verte' & ' Variations Pour Une Porte Et Un Soupir'. I hope to post it in a near futur on Side-C...

Be Seeing You!
