Olivier Messiaen - Improvisations



French composer/organist Olivier Messiaen (1909-1992) improvises at the organ of the Paris Church of the Sainte-Trinité (Holy Trinity), where he was organist for more than six decades (since 1931).

'Then to the shepherds in the fields appeared a hoard of angels singing "Glory to God in the highest!" ... The Wise Men saw the Star of Christ in the Orient and journeyed toward Nazareth. ... And the Wise Men offered gifts to Mary and the baby Jesus: Gold for a king, incense for a god and myrrh for a mortal man.'
