- Jennifer Bate (Organ)
Notes & Reviews:
This recording of award winning organist Jennifer Bate, playing Olivier Messiaen's 'La Nativite du Seigneur' was made in the magnificent setting of Norwich Cathedral.
This recording of Jennifer Bate, one of the foremost international organists of our day, playing Olivier Messiaen's La Nativité du Seigneur was made in the magnificent setting of Norwich Cathedral, when a capacity audience gave her virtuoso performance a prolonged ovation. Messiaen's religious works for the organ have been compared with those of Beethoven 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. Bate's recordings of Messiaen's complete organ works have won international acclaim and many prestigious awards.Notes & Reviews:
