Own and traditional
Lovely versions of traditional and neo-traditional French songs. Some especially gorgeous harmonies. Rather reminiscent of Gabriel Yacoub's solo work, but led by female vocals, and Sylvie Berger has a sweet, strong, and expressive voice. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
I was drawn to this by Gabriel Yacoub's participation, and am very glad to have discovered it. This is a lovely disc, full of gorgeous vocals and harmonies. Exceptionally lovely, and highly recommended for anyone who likes neo-traditional folk. (Neile)
