The Sixteen: Choral Pilgrimage

The Sixteen: Choral Pilgrimage

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - 19:30

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.
