Equally impressive is the variety of interpretative approaches, and the polish with which each is carried off.
The astonishing artistry of the flautist and recorder player Pierre Hamon is as conspicuous as ever Par maintes foys , but the individual singers are also given greater chance to shine individually and most importantly the two agendas no longer compete with each other. This is the place to mention Brigitte Lesne, whose distinctive but perfectly controlled vibrato is a singing-lesson in itself; and the scarcely less individual timbre of Emmanuel Bonnardot, restrained yet intense.
Both are heard in Adieu, jusques je vous revoye. Even as straightforward a piece as Pastourelle en un vergier is fastidiously shaped, yet without the least bit of fuss.
In all cases, they are responded to imaginatively, with a clear understanding of the intention, and the structural integrity of the poetic form both literary and musical is respected. Thus, it is easier to engage with the music on the many levels present both between and within pieces. Yet as I have said, nearly every piece is approached in a different way: I will close as does the disc with the magical Je vous pri , on paper a slight enough piece, but here deeply intelligent and compellingly expressive — adjectives that apply to these interpretations as well.

Whatever view one takes on these positions, the results are mixed, often frustratingly so; on the plus side, much care is taken to vary the manner of performance from one song to the next, and at their best the results are indeed expressive and involving. Some may find the nasal quality cultivated by some of the singers a little grating, especially when intonation and — more importantly — the delivery of the text suffer as a result.
Speaking of this piece in particular, I can only report my bemusement at a performance that claims to be based on my published edition of both text and music, while ignoring its most crucial suggestions regarding the latter.
