I liked all tree renditions though French art songs are not my favorite genre. All were gorgeous and reached the needed degree of melancholy here. I wish I could listen to them live.
I voted for the one I actually heard live, it's Sandrine Piau. Her voice is beautiful, though she sounded a little fresher in a baroque gala than in Alcina next day (she sang Morgana). I must say, her stage presence is amazing. She's not a flamboyant sex goddess like Monica Bellucci, her beauty is of another kind, and she looks as if in her twenties from the audience.
P. S. I like Cyrille Dubois. I saw him in a small part in Le Roi Arthus. It was a rare case when I liked a tenor.
