Poulenc Organ Concerto 22’
Ravel Pavane pour une infante défunte 6’
Poulenc Gloria 28’
Fauré Requiem 37’

On the eve of Bastille Day, this concert honours Francis Poulenc and his compatriots with a feast of French musical treasures. Gloucester Cathedral’s organ is the most suitably Frenchified in the country, and David Briggs knows it better than most – a tantalising set-up for a performance of Poulenc’s spirited, piquantly-flavoured concerto. And you won’t hear choral singing better than here, with a super-chorus formed of four superb chamber choirs conducted by one of the world’s undisputed choral masters, Stephen Layton.
