Joaquín Nin-Culmell (1908–2004) was a student of Dukas and Falla and his early music reflects his Spanish background. The Symphonie des Mystères (1992–4) for alternating Gregorian chant and organ, is a product of the religious devotion of his old age, the chant sections setting in bold relief the austerely passionate organ commentaries, which have an affinity with Messiaen, as Nin-Culmell’s music traces a dramatic arch charting the birth, crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.
