Notes & Reviews:

He was a dandy - but also highly religious. He lived in the era of atonality, but his unmistakably personal music is firmly rooted in the French tradition. And since it first saw the light of day, it has been popular with music-lovers and critics alike. Francais Poulenc composes original, sensuous-sounding and sometimes cheeky, whimsical works in all musical genres. His sacred works contain great depth of personal expression, and Richard Hickox's 1980 recording of the Stabat Mater and the Gloria enjoys reference status to this day.
