F.C. Me fecit LP
B.A.A.D.M. 02 / BEL / 2015
The reciting of vows, the exchange of rings, the nuptial blessing: the Catholic rite of marriage centers around well-structured passages of a sacramental nature. When Frederik Croene was asked to rethink the musical settings for a wedding mass of a couple of friends, he got intrigued by the challenge of playing the Van Peteghem organ at St. Peter’s Church in Gent. ‘F.C. Me Fecit’ is the result of hours of variations high up in the organ loft of the St. Peter’s Church. Recorded during stormy weather, this album reflects the different moods instilled by the idea of an eternal alliance between people. Alternately connecting and disconnecting with the organ, Croene’s polluted chords unfold a world of archaic aesthetics and romantic ambiguity.
