Still committed to a cappella music, the accentus choir focuses its talent on these jewels of 20th century vocal polyphony. Journeying between the sacred and the profane, the ensemble, conducted here by Stephen Layton, interprets the Quatre petites prières de Saint François d’Assise (Four Small Prayers of St Francis of Assisi), a highly expressive work by Francis Poulenc, choral pieces by Benjamin Britten and showcases spectacular compositions by Pierre Villette, making use of Scandinavian-style split vocal lines.
