LE CHEMIN DE LA CROIX BY MARCEL DUPRÉ
 
David Gammie has uploaded an introductory talk about Dupré’s Stations of the Cross onto the ‘Sacred Heart Organ’ YouTube channel. He explains the symbolic musical themes that recur throughout the work (The Cross, Suffering, Redemption, Grief, Consolation…), and also includes excerpts from the poems of Paul Claudel’s Le Chemin de la Croix, which accompanied the first performance of Dupré’s masterpiece in 1931.

The Sacred Heart Church, in Wimbledon, a Roman Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Southwark,  opened for the first Mass on the Feast of The Sacred Heart 17th June 1887 and until 2014 was served by the Jesuits of the British Province, welcomes you to our website. As one of the largest parishes in England, we hope this site highlights the dynamic community that has been a place of worship for over a century.
