About the album

In their latest release for Champs Hill Records, distinguished baritone Roderick Williams and acclaimed Pianist Roger Vignoles join forces once again to offer a stunning recording, this time inspired by their critically acclaimed Wigmore Hall recital of French Song. Williams and Vignoles guide through through much-loved and lesser-known songs by the most celebrated French song composers, alongside other perhaps less well-known to English audiences.
