2006 release. The first album in a mid-2000s trilogy, followed by Amen (2006) and Omega (2007), Sanctus represents the new architecture of the Organum sound. Recorded utilizing an implicit graphic score, the album comprises four discrete parts, each a variant of the others. These are not parts as in a movement or continuation of the composition, but rather four distinct audio canvases that represent a continuum of the elements at large. Composing in the spirit of the early Organum material, David Jackman has resurrected the drone-based, percussive turbulence of earlier years with a distinct new form of compositional systems. These new systems are scored for grand piano, Hammond organ, tower bell, and gong. While each element retains its distinct acoustic quality, the whole of each piece resonates with the art of its totality. The results convey an ecstatic sense of presence, vast expanse, and, ultimately, infinitude.
