The Sixteen Choral Pilgrimage: The Olive Branch
Fri 20 Oct 2017 , 7:30 pm| £27
Poulenc’s choral music was all written after 1936, when the tragic death of a close friend led to a religious epiphany. Its seriousness and intensity contrast with his more frivolous secular style, but these works make perfect companion pieces for the pure counterpoint of the great Renaissance master, Palestrina.
Poulenc: Salve Regina
Palestrina ‘Surge amica mea’ and ‘Surgam et circuibo civitatem’ from Song of Songs
Palestrina: Parce mihi, Domine
Poulenc: Quatre motets pour un temps de penitence
Palestrina: Peccantem me quotidie
Palestrina ‘Kyrie’, ‘Gloria’ and ‘Credo’ from Missa L’Homme Arme
Poulenc: Un Soir de neige
Palestrina: Salve Regina
Poulenc ‘Agnus Dei’ from Mass in G
