This great organ symphony depicting the life of Christ began life in 1921 as an improvisation on the Grand Court Organ inside the John Wanamaker Department Store in Philadelphia! Dupré's improvisation was based on four melodies suggested by audience members including the Easter chants Stabat mater dolorosa and Adoro te devote.
In today’s performance – the first lunchtime concert in our Holy Week Festival – organist Richard Pinel is joined by soprano Grace Davidson, who sings the chants on which this mesmerizing work is based.
The performance lasts approximately 40 minutes
