Notes & Reviews:

This CD brings together Dupre's largest and most startlingly original choral work and smaller motets by three of his most illustrious pupils. It was the devastation of Rouen in the Second World War that inspired Dupre to write a large-scale choral work: the result was the oratorio "La France au Calvaire," which was finally completed in time for the joint celebration of the restoration of Rouen Cathedral and the 500th anniversary of the official pardon of Joan of Arc, in 1956.
