Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) is known for his unique composition style. Incorporating complex rhythms, harmony and melodies, La Nativité Du Seigneur is no exception to the composer's popular, distinctive style.
Volume 1, published in 1935 with the three following volumes, comprises the first three meditations, The Virgin and the Child, The Shepherds and Eternal Purposes. The entire work by Messiaen, La Nativité Du Seigneur is a testament to the composer's Christian faith. The work was one of the first to feature the composer's own modes of limited transposition and influences of birdsong. This edition of the popular Messiaen work includes notes by the composer on how to perform certain features. La Nativité Du Seigneur is essential to all advanced organists seeking to expand and vary their repertoire.
