On Friday, April 7th at 7:30 p.m. organist Stephen Buzard will play Le Chemin de la Croix by Marcel Dupré at the Chapel of Saint John the Divine, 1101 S. Wright Street in Champaign. Dupré originally improvised this work as a series of meditations on the fourteen stations of the cross interspersed with poetry of Paul Claudel. The result was such a success that he wrote it down, resulting in one of the most profound large-scale pieces of the organ repertoire.
