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.
