    Two decorated faces from the mid 20th century, in use on the covers of Songs Of The Auvergne, arranged by Joseph Canteloube (1879–1957) and sung in the Auvergne dialect by soprano Netania Davrath (1931–1987), accompanied by an orchestra conducted by Pierre de la Roche.

    The first release from 1961 features Aldo Novarese’s cheerful Tuscan Fontanesi (Nebiolo, 1954), the second volume from 1963 has the rare Ornata, an open and shaded roman decorated with mid-height stars and a fishbone pattern, designed by Oskar H. W. Hadank for Klingspor in 1943.

    The cover art for both records is by Jules Maidoff (b. 1933), probably with art direction by Jules Halfant.
