“we went … to de los Angeles for warmth of heart, beauty of tone and expression. Everything she did seemed innate and natural….The Jewel song from Faust captures that irresistible smile the soprano could get into her tone and is fabulously phrased.” ((c) Gramophone) “the golden-toned heroine in incomparable Beecham sets of La Bohème and Carmen or Monteux’s magical Manon”…“also from some especially delightful folk-inspired repertoire from both countries (France and Spain), where she was in her element”(Penguin Guide 3 stars)
