City of London Sinfonia and Holst Singers under Stephen Layton, with Elizabeth Watts (soprano) and organist Peter Wright.

Poulenc: Organ Concerto for Organ, Strings and Timpani in G minor

Poulenc: 'Gloria'

Poulenc: 'Les animaux modeles'

Ravel: 'Pavane pour une infante défunte'

(Note: at 6.15pm, a pre-concert debate. Poulenc was a committed Roman Catholic as well as being openly homosexual. BBC Radio Four's Rev Richard Coles and novelist Anne Atkins consider the effect and limitations both religion and sexuality have on artists and their work; free, booking required.)

Part of the City of London Sinfonia's Poulenc festival.
