"The Six Chansons populaires francaises of 1944, re-published here by Boosey, make a delightful cycle of French folksong settings reminiscent of De Falla. In their clarity of texture they would also not be out of place alongside Britten, though Gerhard's harmonies are warmer, suffused with a Southern sun, the occasional pungent dissoncance adding a touch of spice."
