Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine, December 2013
Interpolated with preludes by Ballard, Vallet and contemporaries, Guedron's lute songs are delivered cleanly and prettily, though Ansermet's spoken verse is more expressive than her singing.
MusicWeb International, 1st November 2013
I highly commend this disc. The music is of great beauty: every single air is a gem...The present disc was originally released in the late 1990s...Ansermet sings them brilliantly...her voice is clear and flexible in all ranges...This reissue offers the opportunity to make up for lost time. Grab it.
