Personal Audio & Visual Resource Archive

Unlike several years ago, Messiaens' music is now well represented in the commercial audio market. Listed below is my own personal collection some of which may be of interest and could be made available on a strictly private basis for study or research.

A comprehensive discography can be found in 'The Messiaen Companion' edited by Peter Hill and compiled by Dr. Christopher Dingle.
