Poulenc Salve Regina Palestrina ‘Surge amica mea’, ‘Parce mihi, Domine’ and ‘Surgam et circuibo civitatem’ from Song of Songs 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
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.
