What's On

La Nativité du Seigneur - Messiaen

Join us for an organ recital of Olivier Messiaen's classic Christmas organ cycle, La Nativité du Seigneur.

Messiaen’s organ cycle presents a tableaux of nine movements, telling not only the story of the nativity of Jesus Christ, but also a journey which expresses theological ideas through music.

Performed by David Bednall and Paul Walton, this free recital is a meditative, multi-sensory experience, performed in a candlelit cathedral suffused with incense: sound, light, and scent in praise to God.

Admission to the recital is free, and all are welcome.
