Francis Poulenc: Messe En Sol Majeur

Books | SATB

Publisher: Salabert
Composer: Francis Poulenc
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work
In 1936, attempting to overcome his reputation for musical flippancy, Poulenc began studying the motets of Montverdi, with Nadia Boulanger. Around the same time, his close friend and contemporary, Pierre Octave Ferroud, had died. Amidst this personal crisis, Poulenc was led back to the Catholicism of his youth and this confluence of spiritual and musical interests led him to compose the Messe en Sol Majeur (Mass in G). Available here is the vocal score for SATB Choir a cappella.

        We looked at this music because we are a small SATB group that wants a few challenges however it is actually in 8 parts and the soprano line is stratospheric which is fine for choirboys but not for more mature singers in a very small group ie. 2 to a part. A shame. Description could have been more helpful.
