This is a wonderful collection of songs, beautifully sung and played by Dawson and Drake. The selected pieces are mostly on the sweet side: Poulenc, Chabrier, Faure and the nice surprise Hahn. The two musicians have a very light touch with the music, Dawsons voice tender, the working out of the music rather small scaled. All in all a delicate and surprisingly varied programme, always tender and never too sweet.
