Gilberto Guarino plays romantic organ music (transcriptions).
Massenet wrote this interlude to depict Thaïs conversion to Christianity in one night.
I believe th organ is the instrument capable of preserving the mystical aspect of this "Méditation", without loosing the swells of emotion undulating in Thaïs' soul.
It surely provides a "mélange" of spiritual craving and quite recent recalls of earthly living.
