Notes & Reviews:

The organ compositions of Olivier Messiaen firmly established the composer as a figure of 20th century music. This release features his well-known works L'Ascension and Le Banquet celeste, along with two pieces which were discovered posthumously in 1997, Offrande au Saint-Sacrement, and Prelude. Organist Tom Winpenny does an outstanding job in these performances, which were recorded at the organ at St. Giles' Cathedral, Edinburgh, Scotland.
