BETYG: *****


""Gloriously pompous," says Marc Rochester of the fanfare that opens Poulenc's Gloria. He's quite right, of course, but also right in pointing out that it is absolutely electric. And that goes for much of this terrific album. When the massed forces of Polyphony, the Britten Sinfonia and the Trinity College Choir ring out at full strength, the sound is simply incredible."

"...ett lysande Gloria i en tolkning präglad av stor, briljant dynamik och hundraprocentig vokal träffsäkerhet"

Poulenc's choral music is a deep expression both of his faith and of his unique musical language. In the various motets, the music responds to the composer's studies of Bach, Monteverdi, Palestrina and Gabrieli, but is always stylistically progressive. Prominently featured are Poulenc's distinctive and often ingenious chord progressions. Each motet has its own delightfully etched personality.

Poulenc's Gloria is one of his most enduringly appealing works. In some ways straightforwardly pious, it is also tinged with mischievous irreverence and a sense of rollocking enjoyment. 'When I wrote this piece', Poulenc famously recalled, 'I had in mind those frescoes by Gozzoli where the angels stick out their tongues; and also some serious Benedictine monks I had once seen revelling in a game of football.' This recording by the Britten Sinfonia, The Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, Polyphony and the soprano soloist Susan Gritton under Stephen Layton brings out all these aspects in a classic performance.
