Olivier Messiaen: Messe de la Pentecôte - Things visible and invisible

 

Abstract:

Olivier Messiaen’s Messe de la Pentecôte is one of the French composer’s most symbolic pieces for organ – one that, according to the composer himself, results from considerable improvisation at Église de la Sainte-Trinité in Paris. Investigating the origin and meaning of these improvisations is important to allow an understanding of the creative process of the composer during this period, a process that embraced intertextuality and new musical composition processes. The manuscripts that were the basis for the Messe were only recently made available by the National Library of France and were observed under the scope of this study. The analysis of the Messe was conducted with an original model developed purposefully for this investigation, which considered several elements of musical composition; this model was developed as a result of preliminary research into the composer’s manuscripts. The model of analysis by Messiaen was also used here for comparison. The findings in my thesis point to a considerable utilization and interconnection of three composition elements in the development of the Messe: improvisation, self-quotations and centonization.
