The French composer Francis Poulenc was a man with two faces - at least. "The Munk and the Rake" is a desciption created by a French music journalist and that has been used for his apart sacred and profane works. The joyful member of the composers group Les Six wrote easy-going music for the parlour - and he alse set prayers by the munk Holy Franciscus to music. Poulenc is a composer who writes an opera about nuns facing death for their believes - and about Thérèse´s tits, where these parts of her body takes flight like baloons. With the works chosen for this CD you can maybe sense the broad spectre of the Poulenc oevre.
