    Review:

    "In his touching tribute (March 2005 Opera) Nicolai Gedda found her the ‘most modest of prima-donnas’ (James Murray)
    "In the 1950s ...we went ... to de los Angeles for warmth of heart and beauty of tone and expression. Everything she did seemed innate and natural.... Nowhere was that more evident than in her 1954 recital, made in Rome... at 31, in her vocal prime, singing with an inimitable freshness and ease much material that she never repeated, not least Desdemona's 4th Act scene from Otello, which has seldom if ever been sung with such a sense of vulnerability and plangency. ..from 1950, ..The Jewel song from Faust captures that irresistible smile the soprano could get into her tone and it is fabulously phrased."
