Dupré: Choral Works – Choir & Organ

“I do not think of myself as a composer”, Marcel Dupré humbly admitted at the height of his career. Clearly, even with his great musical gifts, and undoubtedly affected by the devastation of war, he was not prepared to enter the hurly-burly arena of the jobbing composer. His early choral music, however, contains beautifully crafted melodic lines and the closely-knit harmonies of the period. It has a wistful, lonely, almost tragic quality sung here by very English sounding singers accompanied by a distinctly non-Cavallé-Coll organ
