Poulenc: Paradise & Purgatory: City Of London Sinfonia, Stephen Layton, Elizabeth Watts, Holst Singers, Peter Wright
Composer Francis Poulenc's dormant Catholicism was reawakened in 1936 and had a profound influence on him as a composer. Much of his work thereafter was liturgical in nature and moved away from the irreverence of his youth towards greater depth and meaning. His Organ Concerto is hugely powerful and forbidding, whilst being poetic and emotional at turns, while his Gloria is a mixture of solemnity and mischievous exuberance, both in contrast to Ravel's nostalgic and beautiful miniature Pavane.
