- Pièce en trio / For the Trinity Sunday
- Les mains de l’abîme / For the penitential periods
- Chants d’oiseaux / For the Easter Period
- Pièce en trio / For the Trinity Sunday
- Les Yeux dans les roués / For the Whitsun Sunday

Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was a French organist and composer passionate about Ornithology and one of the most important composer of his century. Inspired by Japanese music, he had a very special way of composing and his work can be identified by its complexity, its diatonic aspect, its harmony with limited transposition, its colour and its additive rhythms. He composed many works related to ornithology and birdsong, including the 'Bird Catalogue' in 7 volumes and the 'Treatise on Rhythm, Colour and Ornithology' in 7 volumes.
