1. The burgeoning artist: 1908-1931; 2. Le jeune français: 1931-1939; 3. Occupying time: 1939-1945; 4. Songs of love and death: 1945-1948; 5. For now we see through a glass darkly: 1949-1952; 6. A natural retreat: 1951-1959; 7. The statue remains on its pedestal: 1960-1969; 8. A passion for opera: 1970-1983; 9. Tous les oiseaux des étoiles: 1984-1992.

The next 15 years produced a further five works, ranging from large scale to gargantuan. There are two organ works, Méditations sur le mystère de la Sainte Trinité (1969) and the 18-movement Livre du Saint Sacrement (1984), a nature portrait for piano, La fauvette des jardins (1970) intended as a pendant to Catalogue d’oiseaux , and a celebration of God through the natural phenomena of America, Des canyons aux étoiles . Towering above all of these is the vast opera, Saint François d’Assise . Yet the most striking characteristic of his final work, Éclairs sur l’au-délà… is restraint. The greatest purveyor of musical overstatement since Wagner had become in his final years a master of delectable understatement.
