Pierre Boulez (nearly) only conducted music which also interested him as a music theorist or as a composer – thus his various talents remained in tune with each other at all times. At the Musica Viva 1960 and 1964 respectively he presented concert programs combining medieval music with modernism, . By including a piece like the Messe de Tournai, Boulez intended to put the relationship to contemporary music more in the limelight of the present. Another focus was on music whose content makes use of Christian mythology, such as Igor Stravinsky's "musical play" The Flood. In this curious musical adaptation of the bible Stravinsky not least produced a kind of summary of then current compositional techniques by combining Eastern Jewish number symbolism with Schönberg's dodecaphonic technique: "The pitches are organized serially, and the temporal structures are governed by esoteric categories." (Theo Hirsbrunner) But the erstwhile rebel also musically reviews the less refined moments on Noah's Ark, including shrieks and twittering birds. …

… In Messiaen's composition, birds naturally play a profounder part, . Ivonne Loriod, the composer's wife, plays the piano solo in this recording of Oiseaux exotiques conducted by Boulez, the composer's former student. Following Messiaen's colorful sound patterns, Béla Bartók's Cantata profana is indebted to completely different, regional influences: "My basic idea [...] is the fraternization of nations, a fraternization notwithstanding all wars and quarrels. [...] Therefore I do not preclude any influence at all, from whichever source it may be derived – Slovakian, Rumanian, Arabian, or others." (Bartók) When Claude Debussy wrote his five-act mystery play Le Martyre de Saint Sébastien (1911) he was also musing upon Christianity, and the stories of its martyrs. Even today the French school regard Debussy as one of the most important pioneers of modernism.And for composers from Messiaen to Boulez, Debussy's concise comment on the nature of music is one of the bases of their work: "It consists of rhythmized color and time."

Pax Questuosa (1982) vividly tells “of the vicarious suffering for peace, which, while broken again and again, remains our only hope.”
