Collection of four prayers dedicated to the Friars Minor of the Franciscan monastery of Champfleury (Yvelines) who created them. Poulenc added to the dedication the words: and especially to Brother Jérôme, in memory of his grandfather: my uncle, Camille Poulenc. The four prayers are entitled: Salut, Dame sainte - Tout puissant, très saint - Seigneur, je vous en prie and O mes très chers frères. These are French translations of texts attributed to Francis of Assisi.
