"There are those who regard this imposing legacy as nothing less than Holy Writ....Even now, three years after her official retirement, the very mention of Schwarzkopf is a call to arms among voice buffs....It could well be that the most influential and valuable phase of Schwarzkopf's career has only just begun."
- Peter G. Davis, NEW YORK, 10 May, 1982
