Notes & Reviews:

"...I have heard the woman many times on the operatic stage, and every time I've found myself thanking heaven that I was permitted the experience. But this set of recordings seems to me to confirm my reaction. I simply cannot imagine this material being sung more perfectly...The engineering is a miracle...This is one of those operatic records that should be in every collection..." -Greene, Fanfare
