Notes & Reviews:

"...In recognition of her 75th birthday, also in November, Decca has issued a 27-track 'best of' CD set, showcasing some of [Dame Sutherland's] most famous roles: Lucia, Norma, Violetta, Gilda, Lakme, the Queen of the Night - sensational all of them. But there are some surprises too... there's a fabulously high-camp 'Falling in love with love' from Rodgers & Hart's 'The Boys from Syracuse'... a wonderful celebration of a remarkable career..." ***** -BBC Music
