Notes & Reviews:

This third installment in Hyperion's series, encompassing all Faure's songs, takes its title from the famous Silvestre setting 'Chanson d'amour' and guides the listener on a journey through the panoply of human emotion.

'recording and presentation are the stuff of dreams. Hyperion has done Fauré proud' (Gramophone)

'The songs certainly show Fauré to possess a far wider expressive range than an acquaintance with just a handful of his best-known examples would suggest... the gem of the set has to be Christopher Maltman's traversal of the substantial cycle La bonne chanson. The baritone's rich, subtly shaded tone and alert sensitivity to text prove ideal in this perfectly judged performance' (BBC Music Magazine)

'No other disc, I imagine, has ever managed to be quite so scholarly and quite so erotic at the same time' (The Guardian)
