Roger Sayer, Organist and Director of Music at Temple Church, performs the most popular of all Marcel Dupré’s organ works his mighty Symphonie Passion.  Based on four plainchant themes it began its life as an improvisation. In this period of Eastertide the second half opens with another improvisation based on the Easter Hymn Victimae Paschali. The romantic organ at Temple Church is ideal for the music of Rheinberger and one of his most celebrated sonatas closes the first half of the programme.
