"At this time, Caballé was in her absolute prime, with a voice of great richness, power and security, as well as flexibility. Her singing of 'Casta Diva' is, as required but not often heard, completely regal, and an accurate harbinger of things to come."

- David Patmore, CLASSIC RECORD COLLECTOR, Autumn, 2009

"It's Caballé's show, of course, such magnificent, technically commanding singing, by turns sensitive and dramatic while always maintaining a beautiful vocal line can't be found in any present-day Druid priestess."

- Michael Mark, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Sept./Oct., 2009

"After me, there is only Caballé."

- Zinka Milanov, as quoted in Leonardo A. Ciampa's THE TWILIGHT OF BELCANTO, p.82
