Praises for “Sacred Feast”:

“What  an  accomplishment  this  is. Sacred Feast speaks to Messiaen’s creativity, Bergeron’s ingenuity, and the talents of the band that brings this music to life. Bergeron takes the seeds of Messiaen’s work and plants them so they can sprout into different shapes in a wholly different scene and context.” – Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz
