Notes & Reviews:

Stances du Cid presents a program of Marc-Antoine Charpentier's secular vocal works, some of which are rarely recorded. This album is Cyril Auvity and L'Yriade's debut on Glossa. The airs de cour are ideally crafted for the French haute-contre's voice. In his booklet essay, Vincent Borel provides a defence of the potency of the air de cour and its necessary voice the haute-contre.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2016
Auvity's ardent characterisation conveys a beleaguered lover's anguish in 'Perce jusque au fond du coeur'...Nine more Charpentier miniatures are performed delightfully, with Auvity's flexible mastery of florid details and poetic declamation adept throughout shifting contrasts between soft seductiveness and indignant complaints.

MusicWeb International, March 2016
This is a desirable disc - one in which Auvity's distinctive haute-contre amply conveys the emotions of these varied and beautiful airs. L'Yriade are excellent in their accompaniment... the sound is beautifully captured and well balanced... Glossa should be applauded for this release.
