Laudes and Litanies
Come and listen to Poulenc's beautifully written Four Christmas Motets, and experience the emotional depths of some of his finest writing in the gorgeous Litanies à la vierge noire for female voices and organ. In contrast, Laudes organi is Kodály’s last completed work, and with its imposing organ introduction and interludes it surely marks a fitting end to the career of a composer whose contribution to the Hungarian choral tradition remains unrivalled.
Conductor: Janet Lincé
