Hendrik Andriessen - Fete Dieu
The Dutch composer, Andriessen writes: 'Fête -Dieu [the church festival of Corpus Christi] was composed in the Summer of 1918 , when war still raged and the admired and beloved cathedrals of France were in dire straits. The sharp contrast between the war and the feast of Corpus Christi led me to write this piece. This explains why the piece does not have a festive character but rather a dramatic, beseeching one.'
Debussy - Berceuse Heroique
Composed in November 1914, to honour the heroic resistance of King Albert and his people following the German invasion of Belgium
Rene Vierne - Canzona
Vierne was organist at Notre-Dame-des-Champs in Paris and was killed in action near Verdun in May 1918
