Andrew Caskie (Palmerston Place Church, Edinburgh) plays La Nativité du Seigneur, Olivier Messiaen’s reflective masterpiece for organ on the theology and images of Advent and Christmas.
Messiaen (1908–1992) was one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century, and this nine-movement work is full of radiant and evocative music. The performance will include readings of the Scripture passages the composer referenced at the head of each movement.
Admission is free and includes refreshments.
