On 3 April (Good Friday) at 6:00 pm Jeremy Filsell, organ & Bard Wickkiser, nar­rator offer a meditative performance of Marcel Dupré’s Le Chemin de la Croix Op. 29 (The Stations of the Cross), a remarkable sequence of musical movements inspired by Christ’s journey to the Cross. The music is interspersed with the readings of Paul Claudel (French Ambassador to Washington DC 1928-33) whose poems inspired the origi­nal (improvised) performance in 1932.
