Notes & 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 Parsons's finest recordings: voice and piano seem always to be at one. A magical disc' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)
