Notes & Reviews:

This 3 CD set from Testament focuses on the music of Poulenc, Gounod, Faure, Debussy and Satie. Bernac's performances of these masterworks of the French melodie are among the touchstones of recorded singing. Of special interest will be Graham Johnson's interview with Bernac, found on disc three.
