Messiaen: Le Banquet Celeste; Les Corps Glorieux; Apparition de l'Eglise Eternelle; Etc.

Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
The instrument is captured in prime condition early in its life. It sounds marvellous, especially in a recording that was demonstration class for its time. The youthful Weir's registrations fully demonstrate that this organ has the power and timbral range for Messiaen's music.

David Smith, Presto Classical, April 2014
It would be nothing short of a crime to survey Messiaen's organ works without including Gillian Weir, a long-time champion of these highly original yet deeply reverent pieces. Apparition de l'Eglise Eternelle (Vision of the Eternal Church) is a particular favourite of mine - an early work in which Messiaen's style was clearly not yet fully formed, yet already showing his sense of awe when writing works on divine and mystical themes.
