    • Debussy: Songs, Vol 2
      Hyperion

      Anderson effortlessly glides through Debussy’s limpid , lengthy phrases…Anderson’s rich tone and control is striking in the lower passages of songs like ‘En sourdine’ and ‘La chevelure’, and radiant in her more crystalline upper register
      Christopher Dingle, BBC Music Magazine [4 ****]
      the performances by sopranos Lorna Anderson and Lisa Milne are consistently beautiful, alert to the implications of Debussy’s word-setting, whether ecstatic or subdued, and instinctive in the vocal colour used to summon up poetic images and emotions...Debussy’s response to his divers range of poets is both precise and captivating, features that these performances convey with a wonderful feel for the natural contours and flow of the vocal lines, crystallising incidents or states of mind along the way but with a spontaneity that speaks of thorough immersion in Debussy’s idiom.
      Geoffrey Norris, Gramophone
    • Poulenc: The Complete Songs
      Vol 3

      Lorna Anderson is joined by Thomas Oliemans, which brings most beautiful singing in a nostalgic love duet…with eight outstanding singers and the pianist all on top form, this is the most attractively inviting of these Poulenc anthologies so far issued.
      Ivan March, Gramophone
