CRITIC REVIEWS:

“Stephen Hastings’ monumental study considers Björling’s huge recorded legacy within a much wider perspective than [the earlier Porter & Henrysson books]….the descriptive analysis throughout the book suggests critical faculty of the highest order….[This book] is an invaluable reference not only for Björling enthusiasts but for all who are interested in vocal interpretation. Strongly recommended!”

- Stanley Henig, CLASSICAL RECORDINGS QUARTERLY, Autumn, 2012



“Space permits only a brief description of this splendid work which, given the speed with which books go out-of-print, Björling enthusiasts are exhorted to acquire without delay….Perceptive comparisons with recordings by other great tenors abound.…but Hastings is far from being a hagiographer and his balanced, detailed, note-by-note examinations find points to disapprove of as well as to praise in some of Björling’s recorded work. “

- Michael E. Henstock, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2012
