Written in 1943 in occupied France, Visions de l’Amen is seven ecstatic meditations on Bible verses from Genesis to Revelation.


Messiaen called the main theme the theme of creation. It begins in the Amen of Creation in ‘grand and solemn chords’ and ends in the Amen of the Consummation in a ‘long chorale of glory.’

Recorded live in the Daniel and Joanna S. Rose Studio on November 21, 2019.
Video directed by Tristan Cook.
