Visions of Amen: The Early Life and Music of Olivier Messiaen

Hyesook Kim, Stephane Lemelin, and Stephen Schloesser
Eerdmans, 2014

French composer Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) is probably best known for his Quartet for the End of Time, premiered in a German prisoner-of-war camp in 1941.

This book explores the enormous web of influences in the early part of Messiaen's long life.
