The Suite Carmelite of Jean Françaix (1912-1997) was written in 1938 and was inspired by the novella The Last on the Scaffold by Getrud von Le Fort which was later adapted into a screenplay by Georges Bernanaos which in turn inspired Poulenc’s dramatic 1956 opera Dialogue des Carmelites. Françaix presents us with simple and charming musical character sketches of the various nuns... 
Next month (May 25) I will include the UK premier of the Canadian Denis Bédard (b. 1950) Trois Esquisses for pedals solo.
