It has been a long time since I played this, but after a special request by a colleague, and inspired by the HW VI/Alessandria combo - here with the perfect music for Christmas 2020 :)

Olivier Messiaen was born in 1908 in Avignon. Dieu Parmi Nous is the final reflection in La nativité du Seigneur. the last of the suite’s nine meditations. First comes the descent of God to earth; then a few serene bars telling of the “sweetness of union.” The music becomes increasingly impassioned (“the exulting of the soul”) until a dazzling toccata signals the Incarnation.

Words of the communicant,
of the Virgin,
of the whole church:

He that created me has rested in my tabernacle,
the Word is made flesh and dwells in me.
My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit
hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

(Ecclesiasticus 24:8;
John 1:14;
Luke 1:46-47)
