Notes & Reviews:

"...[this CD], excellently transferred from 78rpm originals, show the American soprano at her most pristine and limpid...The second CD is made up chiefly of broadcast performances, including a ravishing Debussy L'Enfant Prodigue aria and ending with an ecstatic "Inflammatus" from Rossini's Stabat Mater." -Opera News
