The magic of Eric Ericson’s discerning influence over the Netherlands Chamber Choir in a very French repertoire flows through every page of this enterprising double disc covering Poulenc’s complete sacred and secular a cappella music. From moving performances of substantial pieces like the Mass in G, the Christmas motets (interesting that the first of those was dedicated to Felix de Nobel, the choir’s founder) and Figure humaine, to the lighter folk-style songs, the Petites voix miniatures for women’s choir and the poignant cycle Un soir de neige, there is a powerful sensitivity and apposite stylistic ambiance – and Ericson in his 80s.
