Copied URL to clipboard

In this Sounds of Faith episode, we explore the first movement of Marcel Dupré’s Symphonie-Passion, “The World Awaiting the Savior.” Dupré musically portrays the journey from despair to hopefulness through the course of this remarkable piece.

Drawn from a larger four-movement solo organ symphony depicting the life of Christ, this first movement depicts the world in chaos and confusion before Jesus’s birth in Bethlehem.

Watch "The World Awaiting the Savior."
