This compilation, released in 2016 to mark the 25th anniversary of Serge Gainsbourg's death, covers his most prolific and influential period, starting with his first recording session in London in 1963 and progressing up to 1971, the year he released his epochal Histoire de Melody Nelson. The album traces Gainsbourg’s artistic progression throughout the 60s as he worked in two cities: in Paris he was at the centre of the burgeoning yé-yé scene, recording a number of iconic duets with Brigitte Bardot. Tapping into the wealth of talent in the UK at the time, Gainsbourg often travelled to London to work with some of the finest session musicians of the day, epitomizing the swinging '60s scene.

Here's a Symphony of Psalms that successfully captures the spirit and letter of the work–reverence, jubilation, and celebration, as well as specifics of orchestral color and texture. Boys' voices–supposedly Stravinsky's original choice–contribute their share to the bright choral timbre, an effect that works very well. We also get first-rate performances of the Mass and the rarely recorded Canticum sacrum.

A few of these small choral gems are well known to amateur choirs, and Poulenc's secular choral pieces are more often presented one at a time on choral albums than in the groupings in which they were originally included. Francis Poulenc: Secular Choral Music offers the composer's very first choral piece, the Chanson à boire for men's voices (1922), but most of the music here dates from either the late '30s (the Petites voix, for female or children's voices, and Sept chansons) or the World War II era (Un soir de neige), the folk-song settings entitled Chansons françaises, and the ambitious Figure humaine, whose final number, "Liberté," was dropped in sheet music form over French cities by Britain's Royal Air Force. Someone once described Poulenc as "part monk, part hooligan," and these a cappella choral works give evidence of both tendencies. The Chansons françaises are cheerful pieces with just a shade of extended harmony, almost French counterparts to Bartók's folk song settings, while the more serious pieces, such as "Un chien perdu" (A Lost Dog), from the Petites voix, have a mystical tinge that links them strongly with Poulenc's better-known sacred choral music.
