A new, exciting CD has just been published.
Andrew Canning, organist at Uppsala Cathedral and Uppsala University, Sweden, offers a masterful rendition of all nine movements of La Nativité du Seigneur by Olivier Messiaen.
The CD also includes the Offrande au Saint-Sacrement, a piece which was discovered posthumously in 1997 by Messiaen’s wife.
The four-manual Ruffatti organ at Uppsala Cathedral (2009) provides all the versatility needed for such complex and intense music.
