Description: The second and final volume of Bordes' small mélodie output comes exactly one year after the first (11O052). The notes here concentrate on the poets (the first volume was all-Verlaine) rather than the music, which, let us remember, comes from a composer whose two main interests were French and Italian Renaissance music and old Basque folk music. French texts. Sophie Marin-Degor (soprano), Géraldine Chauvet (mezzo), Éric Huchet (tenor), Nicolas Cavallier (bass), François-René Duchâble (piano).
