Have heard a number of tracks today. Artistically talented but do not appreciate his composing abilities.

@stlorganist, Amen!

you apreciate only when you understand it. Some good reading about: GILLOCK, Jon. Performng Messiaen's organ music. BRUHN, Siglind. Messiaen's interpretations of holiness and Trinity: echoes of medieval theology in the oratorio, organ meditation, and opera.

Amazing to hear the composer himself on this recording. Not a huge Messiaen fan, but this piece is astounding and impressive in so many ways. I like his dramatic use of pauses throughout this recording unlike some others who rush through some of it.

Messiaen’s holier-than-thou compositions are repugnant! I went to Roman Catholic grade school and high school. We went to mass every day. I was an altar boy for well into the 9th grade. I started playing the organ in church at age 12 and played 5 masses a weekend at 3 different parishes. YET, Messiaen’s self-righteous garbage is revered. He’s more Catholic than the rest of us! Well, I’ve studied his works. They are no more holier or mystic than other composers who write tonal music. His is all atonal dreck. IF he was such a great organist, why, cannot I find at least ONE recording of him playing Bach? Or Mendelssohn? Widor, Vierne, or Dupre? I don’t know! Guess he could only play his own atonal, dissonant, convoluted compositions.
