Abstract: 'Vingt regards sur l'Enfant-Jesus' was written in 1944 and represents Messiaen's first truely idiomatic work for piano. The twenty movements of the cycle contemplate the Infant Jesus in the crib and the adorations that are bestowed upon him. This thesis considers the composer's inspiration behind the work, the musical representation of such, and a general survey of each movement.
