More Info:

The Grid features a program of Philip Glass's most well-known music hand-selected by organist James McVinnie and adapted especially for the sounds of the Arp Schnitger Organ of the Michaelskerk in Zwolle Holland. It produces a richer and deeper sound than the farfisa keyboard organs played by the original Philip Glass Ensemble of the 1970's. The pieces chosen by McVinnie for this recording include North Star (Etoile Polaire) from Glass's music to the 1977 documentary about sculptor Mark diSuvero, three broad and ambitious pieces from Glass's landmark score to the film Koyaanisqatsi, and Mad Rush, the only piece specifically composed by Glass for pipe organ in 1979.
