Description: Cras was self-taught with a little advice from Duparc so his music adopts no current style although the last Tagore poem of L'offrande lyrique makes use of a few Debussian traits and the Robaiyat has its own "orientalisms". If there were English translations of the texts, this would be a super disc, so good and useful and well-translated are the notes! French texts. Chloé Waysfeld (soprano), Christophe Crapez (tenor), Philippe Cantor (baritone), Laurent Wagschal (piano). 2008 release.
