When Handel first presented his setting of Alexander’s Feast, or The Power of Music, on 25 February 1736 at Covent Garden, he needed to extend the two-part work to satisfy his opera-going audience’s expectations of a three-act evening. Ten days later Handel reworked some existing material, and added a text by John Dryden – The Ode to St. Cecilia was born.

Sacré France

In 1936, the death of a composer friend in an automobile accident prompted Poulenc to visit the shrine of the Black Virgin of Rocamadour, where he experienced a life-changing transformation. This rediscovery of his Roman Catholic faith led to a series of compositions based on religious themes, beginning with the Litanies à la vierge noire (1936) and including the Mass in G (1937).
