'Up to Hyperion's habitual high standard' (Gramophone)

'Felicity Lott…is radiant and unhurried and the pick of an excellent crop of singers' (BBC Music Magazine)

'With this disc, the music of Chausson really does find revelatory new significance' (The Times)

'Superb. Art is long, life is short, and this offering is very, very rich' (Fanfare, USA)

'This is Hyperion at its best, presenting sensuous, exquisite performances … Dames Felicity Lott and Ann Murray generate magical artistry' (Music Week)

'Unlikely to be bettered' (MusicWeb International)

'To have the complete collection gathered together on disc is a treat, and with artists like these, the performances are about as good as you could expect this side of the pearly gates … If a reason for a reassessment of Chausson's role as a writer of mélodie is needed, this marvellous set is overwhelmingly it' (Amazon.co.uk)

'Editor, musicologist, impresario and pianist Graham Johnson gives us a jewel-box of essays, poems, time-lines, artwork, and Chausson's complete songs. And the performances are as magical and eloquent as the program book' (Opera News)
