Oliver Messiaen – La Nativité du Seigneur

Inspired by the Christian faith, La Nativité du Seigneur is divided into nine ‘meditations’ to represent the birth of Jesus. The peaceful opening movements develop into a monumental work, and you can hear that Messiaen sought to capture “the emotion and sincerity first” from his inspirations, as written in the preface of the work.
