Via Crucis, op. 12
A Via Crucis is particular sacred music: it accompanies a celebration, the one of the Good Friday and the fourteen Stations of the Way of the Cross. A such piece has no compulsory texts; then, Romain Corbisier chose some sacred texts to accompany some of them. The work alternates moments when the orchestra comments alone the Way fo the Cross, and others when the choir and the soloist are accompanied.
It is a particular music that takes all its powerful dimension when it is performed during the celebration of the Good Friday, but, it finds also a very great expression in a concert hall.
