"Jean Borthayre is proof that a French baritone can sing with great warmth, full-bodied tone, immaculate diction and fine musicality. Borthayre has it all going for him. This glorious voice is heard here in a mainly French program….This is one of the most pleasing recital discs to come my way in a very long time – grand singing at its grandest."
