Notes and Editorial Reviews

'This gorgeous set ... Irresistable' (The Sunday Times) 'What treasures are here ... The two discs provide an unmissable opportunity to explore a composer who is underrated and overlooked perhaps because he was too modest about himself. There are melodies here which Massenet, Debussy, Fauré and Ravel would have been proud to call their own. No one can fail to have their musical horizon broadened by these discs, which will assuredly come high among my Records of the Year, any year' (The Sunday Telegraph) 'These discs have given me as much pleasure as any I have heard this year ... to hear Felicity Lott in 'Les Etoiles', Susan Bickley in 'Offrande' and Ian Bostridge in 'Tyndaris' is to relish some of the most accomplished vocal artistry of Read more the day' (The Sunday Telegraph) 'Graham Johnson choisir ses chanteurs qui possèdent une musicalité irréprochable et un français non seulement intelligible mais évocateur - et de les accompanger avec tant de poésie' (Diapason, France) 'Some fascinating rarities' (Gramophone) p> 'To wonderful songs ... [the artists] bring delicacy, grace, an emotion the more poignant for being understated ... Not to be missed' (The Observer) 'This is music for the intellect, interpreted with the utmost sensitivity' (Hi-Fi News) 'For the best song-singing I've heard in many moons this is the one' (Fi, USA) Read less
