Notes & Reviews:

'Beautifully performed' (Gramophone)

'Delicate, stylish performances' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'A very recommendable issue' (Hi-Fi News)

'Martyn Hill's tenor is perfectly suited to Hahn's deliciously sentimental idiom...Most of the settings on the disc are to texts by his favourite Verlaine, including the seven Chansons grises. Hahn gages the level of sensuality perfectly, allowing the words to make their point rather than making the point on their behalf, and Hill and his accompanist Johnson relax wonderfully into this rather enticing world' (BBC Music Magazine)
