Poulenc - Gloria - BBC Music Magazine



Stephen Layton's tight control of his forces, both choral and orchestral, lends impeccable ensemble and heart-thumping excitement - has the opening tutti ever had such punch? Soprano Susan Gritton is superb, too, in her committed, soaring performances. The combined choirs of Trinity College, Cambridge and pro group Polyphony are astounding as a vrituoso choral unit … The motets on Layton's recording are a masterclass in choral singing.
