5.0 out of 5 stars This is THE ONE, 28 Jan 2006

This review is from: Poulenc: Sacred Choral Works (Audio CD)
Rutter, composer of rather saccharine choral music, conducts the Poulenc utterly, sublimely and gloriously. And here's a hot tip: if you haven't seen Kenneth Macmillan's production of the ballet to the Poulenc 'Gloria' - make sure you do. Put on regularly at Covent Covent Garden. Makes every goose bump you have prickle. Always brings tears. Rutter does a superb job here.

This review is from: Poulenc: Sacred Choral Works (Audio CD)
Poulenc's Gloria is quite unlike anything else. You think you know where you are with it - the odd echo of Stavinsky here, something more old fashioned there - but then it shifts and surprises you. Slowly it establishes itself in your mind as different, distinctive, coherent, heartfelt, surprisingly profound and, well, special. The performances here are all excellent. The singing is truly first rate.
