Detailing the understanding and performance of French song, famous French baritone Pierre Bernac provides insight in this book for singers, accompanists, and concert-goers. Teamed with composer Francis Poulenc for more than 25 years, Bernac and Poulenc became a legend and one of the first duos to be recognized as equals within the music arena. Texts of over 200 songs are given in French with line-for-line translations in English.
