Notes & Reviews:

Nourished by Messiaen's beloved birdsong and Hindu rhythms, the Méditations bring alive the deepest mysteries of Catholicism, here performed with a visceral intensity by Michael Bonaventure. This is the second release in Delphian's survey of Messiaen's complete organ music recorded by Timothy Byram-Wigfield and Bonaventure. The stunning booklet incorporates a booklet essay written by Méditations authority Andrew Shenton.
