CRITIC REVIEW:

“Mr Scott's procedure is clarity itself. Each singer is placed within his or her national context, the highlights of the career are examined with liberal quotes from contemporary observers and critics, followed by an analysis of the voice, its strengths and weaknesses as illustrated by the recordings....His ideals are obviously grounded on strict classical training, and he applies his yardstick without compromise -- many singers represented here, often held up as paradigms of golden-age perfection, come in for some hard knocks.”

- Peter G. Davis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
