Notes & Reviews:

"Maria Chiara... is the possessor of one of the most gloriously beautiful voices I have heard in a very long time... in one aria after another... she shades her tone, controls the finest hairpin crescendos and diminuendos with perfect poise... Decca is to be congratulated on signing her up." - Gramophone
