Notes & Reviews:

"Recently an appropriate degree of attention has been going to the French chansons repertoire...Anne Sophie van Otter's beautifully chosen chamber songs do not overlap with Bartoli's recent..disc..and ..the accompaniment is a variety of instruments, which makes a very colorful and atmospheric physical frame for the voice..[Van Otter] is a superb interpreter of the French repertoire...This is a sublime and very varied collection of sensuous and witty pieces. -Sutcliffe, Classic CD
