Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Deeply considered and deeply moving performances' (BBC Record Review) 'A performance to treasure' (Opera Now) 'This varied and generous selection of 28 songs is perhaps the best general introduction to this important side of Fauré's output and is also one of Geoffrey Parson's finest recordings: voice and piano seem always to be at one.
