Notes & Reviews:

This was truly a golden age: each of these singers was French and with the exception of Journet, they all spent the bulk of their careers in France. Nearly all the music is French and in almost every case there is an ideal fit between singer and aria rarely found when non-French singers embrace the same repertoire.
