Notes & Reviews:
[The Mary Stuart songs] are all sung with conviction.
The quality of the voice, the balance and the piano tone are of amazing fidelity. Interpretatively too, Mme Seefried is at her most penetrating and revealing, scrupulous with words and their meaning, wonderfully subtle at varying the mood in strophic songs, immensely vital in rhythm.
BBC Music Magazine
Nineteenth-century German Lieder recorded with Seefried's regular accompanist, Erik Werba, between 1952 and 1962. Both are perfectly idiomatic, performing with easy confidence.
