Reviews

‘A beautiful performance of some ravishing music. Danco has never sounded better on records, and Johnson understands the idiom.’ Gramophone, September 1951 (Berlioz)

‘[Lucie Daullène] sings with the same precision of style [as Madeleine Grey] and with much the same kind of never-never impersonality that communicates so very personally across the spaces and across the years. The sound is actually that of a not-large room; but when the music begins, the walls melt into field and hills, the ceiling becomes sky … Very highly recommended.’ High Fidelity, June 1956 (Canteloube)
