"This compilation of french classics is artistically priceless. Michael Schade and Russell Braun deliver charm and beauty mixed with subtle sadness on certain pieces, that only true musical genius can convey effectively. Michael Schade's crystal clear voice is pure, sweet and high, a gift that few possess and even fewer utilize. I would listen to Michael Schade over Pavarotti any day of the week! Russell Braun delivers an equally endearing baritone voice that conveys dramatic phrases as well as more expressive passages.It is this type of quality music that makes me fiercely proud to be Canadian. I only wish that more Canadians would see the value of this art and push their elected representatives to keep it alive and make it thrive. To read more on this topic, read the article Richard Bradshaw has written on the Canadian Opera Company Web Page. This cd is a must have for anyone who is remotely musically adept. If you have ears you will enjoy this cd. Need I say more?..."
