Messiaen is a really interesting composer and wrote, regrettably, only one opera. Not an easy piece of music, but certainly right on the money regarding its saintly subject. The piece you posted is truly wonderful. The intricacies of the creative mind certainly shine through in the wonderful piece you posted.
