This article reviews one of the defining aspects of genesis of the oeuvre of the famous French composer of XX century – Francis Poulenc. It outlines dominant features of the artist’s personality – universality of thinking, paradoxicality, organic coexistence of sacred and secular, feminocentrism, lyricism – and traces their direct connections with cultural codes of the High and Late Middle Ages, in particular with the art of troubadours and trouveurs. The article points out the unique integrity of Poulenc’s multilevel artistic world through the metaphor of XIII century polytextual motet. It proves that the awareness of the origins of Poulenc’s style provides deep understanding of the psychology of his artistic method and allows reinterpretation of the composer’s role and place in the modern cultural space.
