Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) is known for his unique composition style. Incorporating complex rhythms, harmony and melodies, Méditations Sur Le Mystère De La Sainte Trinité is no exception to the composer's popular, distinctive style.

Composed in 1969, Méditations Sur Le Mystère De La Sainte Trinité is an example of Messiaen's use of Serialism. The composer first used what he called his "musical alphabet" in Méditations Sur Le Mystère De La Sainte Trinité, where the alphabet includes motifs for the concepts, 'to have', 'to be' and 'God'. Furthermore, 'sentences' depict the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas. Messiaen's "musical alphabet", which he also described as "communicable language" is explained as a preface to the composition Méditations Sur Le Mystère De La Sainte Trinité. Divided into nine sections ('meditations'), a typical performance lasts about 74 minutes. Messiaen'sMéditations Sur Le Mystère De La Sainte Trinité is essential to all advanced, virtuoso and contemporary organists seeking to expand and vary their repertoire.
