John Scott's first recording of Dupré's organ music (CDA66205) is one of the most striking discs in the Hyperion catalogue. Here at last is a second programme recorded on the same instrument—the organ of St Paul's Cathedral.

Dupré's is a majestic and individual voice in the long tradition of French organ music. The major piece on the disc is the Symphonie-Passion, each of the four movements of which depicts a dramatic event in Christ's life. This is deeply satisfying music.

The notes for the disc have been written by Felix Aprahamian who knew the composer well.




‘Stunning … a revelatory performance, reaching into the very heart of a work in which "there are dark forces at work" … a real treat’ (Gramophone)

‘Thrilling music, thrillingly played’ (BBC Music Magazine)

‘Superb’ (International Record Review)

‘Here's a spectacular record’ (Classic CD)

‘If you seek a recording of Dupré's works which does full justice to the music's myriad shades and inflections in an acoustic which leaves you quite simply in awe, look no further. One could almost imagine Dupré himself improvising the magical sounds pervading St Paul's. Need I say more?’ (Cathedral Music)
