Originally a set of improvisations played during a reading of Paul Claudel’s verse meditations on the fourteen Stations of the Cross, Le Chemin de la Croix became one of Marcel Dupr√©’s favorite pieces. He played it every year during Lent at Saint-Sulpice in Paris. The hour-long score follows the Stations from the sentencing of Jesus to his entombment.
