Messiaen: La Nativité du Seigneur

Roger Sayer organ

A performance for Candlemas of Olivier Messiaen’s powerful and deeply mystical organ cycle.  Written in 1935 when he was 27, this kaleidoscopic work established Messiaen's worldwide reputation as a visionary composer for the organ.  A tableaux of nine movements or ‘mediations’, La Nativité du Seigneur is a musical commentary on the Christmas story evoking beauty, radiance, exhilaration and majesty.

This is a free event (no booking required) lasting approximately one hour.
