Information from LP (MHS)
"During the 1960s (Hugues Cuénod) I founded the Baroque Ensemble of Lausanne with which I sang and recorded the works of Monteverdi in the company of Éric Tappy and Étienne Bettens for the voices, Christianne Jacottet at the harpsichord, and Marçal Cervera playing the viola da gamba. Monteverdi remains one of my dearest memories; all his works push the limits of his musical imagination, I believe it was the recording with Nadia (Boulanger) in 1937 that somewhat propagated Monteverdi's music. After that, everybody started to work with it."
(Excerpts from (p. 80): Hugues Cuénod with an Agile Voice, conversations with François Hudry, translated by Albert Fuller, Pendragon Press, 1999).
