Mr. Messiaen's music remains seraphically beautiful and
compelling on a level that runs more deeply than mere accessibility.
And in Mr. Gillock's skillful, sympathetic hands (and feet),
Book of the Holy Sacrament
purled and roared, piped and rumbled like the Book of Revelations
transmuted into sound.
New York Times
Jon Gillock's performance was the high point of the convention.
playing was smooth, secure in each of the styles, elegant.
York Organist Plays Impeccably...Jon Gillock provided a stunning
concert from beginning to end.
Gillock...an awesome executant of Messiaen. [His] performance
[of Livre du Saint Sacrement] delivered poetry in the
beatific sections and tremendous power in the Gothic sections...an
exercise in artistry.
(Centennial National Convention of the American Guild of Organists)
“We are still raving about your concert [Bach’s Art of Fugue]. It was a life changing experience!”
