Dupré: Le Chemin de la Croix
FREE EVENT (DONATION ACCEPTED)
Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 6:45PM

Saint Thomas Church
One West Fifty-Third Street
New York, NY 10019
53rd Street and 5th Avenue

This program lasts approximately 1 hour and is presented without charge. Your donations (either online or at the door) are greatly appreciated.

On April 7th, we will hear Marcel Dupré’s vivid and dramatic tone poem based on the Fourteen Stations of the Cross, Le Chemin de la Croix, Op. 29. In between each movement of this poème symphonique will be read the English translations of intense poetic responses to the Stations by Paul Claudel (1868-1955), one who experienced a sudden religious conversion at the age of eighteen while listening to the choir sing Vespers in the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. Although a poet, Claudel’s professional life included spells as French vice-consul here in New York and as the French ambassador to Washington, D.C. (1928–1933).
