Francis Poulenc (1899-1963)

When I wrote this piece … 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. - Poulenc with reference to the composition of his Gloria (1959) for solo soprano, chorus and orchestra.

Sheet music: Francis Poulenc
