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).
