Joy – Musical


Josep Maria Gregori


The Nativity of the Lord by Olivier Messiaen (1935) “Dieu Parmi nous”, concluded the cycle of orgies on The Nativity of the Lord

Introductory remarks:

God is humanity in us, and He divinizes us for His grace and for His love’, and so the Nativity of the Lord sings ‘the mystery of God makes home and the mystery of home refers to God’ (Louis Cattiaux). Crist is the goal of Humanity and the greatest joy of the Home is to give witness to the birth of ‘God in us’ that Messiaen speaks of with the enlightenment of the body.
