Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
This set usefully collects Poulenc's concertante works and throws in Les biches and the Litanies à la Vierge noire for good measure. Richly characterful accounts, though far from blemish-free.

Gramophone Magazine
The sheer élan and authority of this performance [of the Organ Concerto] sweeps all before it and the sense of occasion is palpable. Space is of the essence here in that the music can breathe naturally and [Prêtre] captures the ebb and flow of the sectionally constructed score as to the manner born. A hard act to follow!
