Olivier Messiaen: Les Corps glorieux Vol.2: Organ

Score Only | Organ
Composer Olivier Messiaen
Publisher Alphonse Leduc
Instrumentation Organ

Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) is known for his unique composition style. Incorporating complex rhythms, harmony, melodies and his passion for ornithology, Les Corps Glorieux is no exception to the composer's popular, distinctive style.

Composed in the summer of 1939, the work was completed one week before the breakout of WWII, therefore the first performance did not come until 1945. Being one of Messiaen's earlier works, Les Corps Glorieux for Organ represents the evolution of the composer's musical language. Part 2 contains the fourth movement, Battle between death and life which incorporates the influence of Indian music and Gregorian chant, as heard throughout the work. Les Corps Glorieux is essential to advanced organists and seeking to address a modern and varied performance work.
