Notes & Reviews:

Winner of the coveted Prix de Rome, Alfred Desenclos remains an almost unknown figure in twentieth-century music. His contribution to the distinguished French tradition of Requiem Mass settings dates from 1963. Incorporating influences from Gregorian chant as well as rich harmonies based on added-note chords, this piece is a revelation. Also featured on this recording by David Trendell and the Choir of King's College, London, are works by Villette and Poulenc, whose return to Catholicism in 1936 initiated a line of pieces that represent some of the most significant religious choral music of the twentieth century. Trendell's choir is on top form, and the organ at his alma mater, Exeter College, Oxford, provides the perfect accompaniment.
