A programme of music associated with the Christmas story by two of the greatest composers to write for the organ. Composed in 1747, the Canonic Variations Von Himmel Hoch display the beauty and ingenuity of Bach’s craft at its finest. The works by Messiaen come from his epic cycle La Nativite du Seigneur, a highly colourful and deeply profound exposition of Christmas themes.
