Numéro de catalogue: AL16850

Format: Partitions | Album Instrumental

This version of Cortège Et Litanie by Marcel Dupré was written for Organ. For upper intermediate players, these 8 page composition is written with 4 sharps and includes the use of the pedals.

The piece, initially written for a small orchestra in 1922, was created for a play. Dupré integrated it into one of his Piano recitals and was later asked to arrange it for other instruments. These scores therefore exist also arranged for Piano, Orchestra (in 4 and 16) and for the conductor.

In terms of composition, the piece is divided into two: Cortège, which title describes a solemn procession, begins in E major and lasts twice as long as the introductory theme; and Litanie, which is describing the prayer sung during a procession and which follows the Cortège part to then be joined by it.

Marcel Dupré is a French composer and virtuoso organist who won the Prix de Rome in 1914. He became famous when he played the work of Bach in its totality from memory in 1920. He later became the professor of many renowned students at the Paris Conservatoire such as Messiaen, Langlais and Cochereau among others.

        This is the organ version of music originally written for orchestra. One of Dupré's most beautiful works. Not as difficult as some of his organ works, but big hands do help to make those big orchestral style sounds demanded by the score. It is well worth sourcing an orchestral recording of this work before playing - it will help you make more sense of the various thematic lines. Beautifully presented score from the original publisher with registrations for French and English organ.
