Christ’s Passion has been depicted in countless works of art, music, literature and theatre. Le Chemin de la Croix (The Stations of the Cross) offer a path through prayer and meditation to follow Christ’s suffering, death and burial. Dupre’s composition on the Stations is a symphonic poem that conveys through music the suffering and agony of Christ’s Passion.  He first improvised the work in 1931 and later wrote it down, performing it annually every Lent at Saint-Sulpice in Paris.  On Palm Sunday, come experience and reflect upon one of the most spiritual and powerful organ works ever composed.
