“There are those singers who, despite relatively ordinary careers, are remembered by posterity by dint of having made a few records. Because of their recordings, some artists of yesteryear are even more highly regarded nowadays than they were during their own lifetimes. Not so for Edmond Clément (1867-1928), the famous French tenor idolized by the audiences of the Paris Opéra-Comique….The many recorded documents of his work that we possess have not yet established his rightful place in our collective consciousness. While listening to Clément, one should not expect the immediate impact and solar timbre of a Caruso or a Gigli. Instead, one must go one step further and listen attentively to savor a ray of the moonlight that illuminates his voice, and to discover the poetry and charm of an exquisite artist.”

- Jacques Chuilon, THE OPERA QUARTERLY
