A unique musical experience

"Edward Greenfield included one of the songs in his BBC radio show. It should have been a difficult choice, as most are equally enchanting.
The act of listening, for the first time, at this unique music is like intruding into a secret isolated world, which the Auvergne is (or was). Even the lyrics belong to a mysterious language, closer to Spanish or Portugese than French (A careful translation into English is provided with this version, to follow the minute lovely stories behind these songs).With the evident assistance of Canteloube (to what extent is hard to say) this somehow marginal civilization has produced music which is sad, exquisite and delicate, but, above all, unusual and extremely worth-loving."

"Beautiful songs, beautifully sung. Frederica von Stade has a truly beautiful voice and performs these songs accurately and just as well as Auger or Te Kanawa. Each of these songs is a little gem and the orchestra and conductor are wonderful."
Transformed to another place, another time.....

"I first heard a tape if the 'Chants d'Auvergne' in an automobile. It was von Stade singing. My first exposure was not under the best of circumstances! But I could not believe the beauty, the did not matter what the subject, nor the words, I 'felt' what she was felt through her voice. I melted.A music teacher who has become a new collector of CD's, this was one of the very first CD's I had to have. It still haunts me and although I have now purchased other versions of Chants, it is the one that I will gift friends with this holiday season! Seems her voice, rich as it is, conjures up visions of the French countryside and the folk music.Having read the English version, I soon forget it, getting lost in the whole musical experience while listening. What more can there be than to be transformed to another place and time through this beautiful interpretation? Add it my favorite pieces of music, Rachmaninoff's 'Vocalize', Samuel Barber's 'Adagio for Strings', Bachianas 'Brasileiras No 5 Aria' (yes, sung by Te Kanawa)"
