Excellent question. I am partial to the solo organ works; my favorite being Marie-Claire Alain "La Nativite Du Seigneur" (1988 Erato). It has that etherial quality with multiple radical breaks into that 'the Divine glory' sound he does so well, like the skies are erupting and at any minute a horde of flaming angels will swoop down and saturate the earth with molten gold and feathers. It never does though!
