* Gateway to French Mélodies leads us into a fragrant garden of poetry and music that is both passionate and refined.
* Each song brings to life one of the great themes of French art- love, nature, the purpose of life--with sensuous beauty, beguiling grace, and often with humor.
* Understanding what you sing is the basic concept of the Gateway series.
* Each lyric is translated, both word-by-word and in readable English.
* The singer can learn the song with confidence, as obscure points of phonetics, grammar and interpretation are made clear.
* The cultural context of each song is illuminated, along with its place in the life and works of the composer.
* Many of the marvelous songs found here been out of print for more than a century and a few are published here for the very first time.
* The songs include: "Plaisir d'amour," the quintessential song of bittersweet love, edited from the composer's original 1784 edition
* Seven works by women composers, including two sisters who were divas of Romantic opera, Maria Malibran and Pauline Viardot
* Works of French operatic masters such as Gounod, Saint-Saëns, Bizet, and Massenet
* Six songs by Gabriel Fauré and four by Claude Debussy
* Two duets from contrasting historical periods
* Piano accompaniments are heard on the companion CD, beautifully played by Joan Thompson and expertly engineered by Grammy Award winner Matthew Snyder.

* Series: Gateway Series
* Category: Vocal Collection
