Messiaen disc 18

Saint François d'Assise
    Sixième Tableau: Le Prêche aux oisseaux

And so we come to the centerpiece of the opera, "The Sermon to the Birds".

The opera is really quite beautiful, even if it's a form I'm disinclined to enjoy.

One more opera disc to go, and then it's Turangalîla. The opera and organ recordings? I am sometimes forcing myself to experience all of the. But, Turangalîla, I don't need an excuse to listen to that one. I'm sure I'll have some things to write.
