"In his previous books about singers, John Steane has taken for his subject the art of singing as heard on records (THE GRAND TRADITION) and 'in the flesh' in opera houses and concert halls (VOICES, SINGERS AND CRITICS). Here, in SINGERS OF THE CENTURY, is a collection of essays that comprise the first in a continuing series of articles published monthly in OPERA NOW, he turns to the singers themselves - seeing how their art develops - with opportunity, chance, and design playing their part. Each study is a carefully worked vignette, and the book is illustrated throughout with photographs and memorabilia, many never before published. SINGERS OF THE CENTURY will appeal to all who possess a love of singing and a taste for music writing at its best.”
