After 20 years of putting her classical voice on the back burner, Lynn Skinner re-discovers her roots by singing this beautiful collection of 19th Century French art songs. Tinged with the years Lynn has spent singing jazz, she approaches this material with a fresh and elastic charm. Martha Yordy\'s impeccable piano accompaniment adds musical depth and sophistication. All but one of the tracks are compositions by Gabriel Faure, with words from some of the finest poets of his time. However, the emotion and music found on Faure Explore is timeless.
