'Roger Vignoles is a most sympathetic accompanist, and virtuosic where virtuosity is called for, and the whole set is at one with Duparc's own evaluation of these magnificent songs' (Gramophone)

'For a disc of all 17 of Duparc's melodies, the clear first choice is Sarah Walker and Thomas Allen' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Another impressive first for Hyperion. There are few singers in Britain today more at home in the French language, and both are well attuned to Duparc's subtle and refined musical world! (BBC Record Review)

'The Hyperion issue is as near an ideal Duparc record as could be' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)
