This recording of Jennifer Bate, one of the foremost international organists of our day, playing Olivier Messaiens La Nativité du Seigneur was made in the magnificent setting of Norwich Cathedral, when a capacity audience gave her virtuoso performance a prolonged ovation.
Messiaens works for the organ have been compared with those of Bach in their greatness for the solo instrument. La Nativité du Seigneur is no exception: its virtuosity embraces a magnificent cycle of nine meditations on the Christmas message.
Bates recordings of Messaiens complete organ works have won international acclaim and many prestigious awards and this film was enthusiastically endorsed by Messiaen himself.
