Maggie Teyte (1888-1976) is one of my favorite singers of all time, and although her interpretation of Debussy’s songbook is one of my all time favorite works, I decided to post this song: L’heure Exquise by Reynaldo Hahn.

Together with Gerald Moore, who is regarding the piano accompaniment most tenderly, she sings this beautiful tribute to “the exquisite hour”.┬áThis one is dedicated to my beautiful Venus, with whom I have listened to this side over & over again all throughout these last couple seasons.
