The Fables of La Fontaine enjoyed universal success from their first appearance in 1668. Fifty years later a collection of songs was published in Paris based on some of these tales set to vaudeville tunes and other simple airs. For th is new edition of these unknown settings the author has written an extensive historical introduction translated all the texts into English and provided invaluable suggestions on performance practice. A delightful and witty addition to the concert repertory.
