Messiaenís mature meditation on the Eucharist is linked to stages in Jesusí life as well as to the church and its realization of the mystery. Composed in 1984, the 18 separate movements represent the most varied stylistic methods of Messiaenís musical career, spanning over 60 years. The live performance is by Elisabeth Zawadke at the new Goll organ (2000) at the Kulture- and Kongresszentrum of Lucerne. Please note that the price printed in the 2003 OHS Catalog is incorrect.
