Extraordinary collection of Mouskouri recordings from many years. She sings in many languages, especially French, German, English, and her native Greek - and she makes all of them sound wonderful. In fact, she sometimes sings a song written in one language in another with intriguing effect: e.g., La Vie en Rose in German as Schau Mich Bitte Nicht So An. Many of the songs are very well known, such as Plaisir d'amour, Les trois cloches, Amapola, the Habanera from Carmen, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Changes Everything, Schubert's Ave Maria, &c. All are at least interesting, most are lovely.
