Abstract

One of the largest commemorative projects of the early 20th century undertaken by the French was the May 1921 celebrations to mark the centenary of Napoleon’s death. This was the occasion for a plethora of government-sponsored solemnities, processions, lectures, exhibitions and public eulogies. Several composers were commissioned to write music for the events, including Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) and Louis Vierne (1870-1937). Principal organist of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris since 1900, Louis Vierne composed the Marche Triomphale pour le Centenaire de Napoléon I (op. 46) for a commemorative service at the cathedral which took place on 5th May 1921. This Preface explores the compositional history, performance history and gives a brief analysis of the work.
