CRITIC REVIEWS:

"For Romophone, 'complete' means just that. The Ponselle has every playable 'take' made in that period, issued or not, seventeen of them, all fascinating, many never available before and none so precisely pitched.... Ponselle's Romophone CD is self-recommending."

- Albert Innaurato, OPERA NEWS, Aug., 1994



"They're very collectable, these Romophone complete editions. Up they go on the shelves, and you know that there is another small but quite important area in the history of singing on records properly covered, ready for reference at any time, and reference that will be a pleasure because the standard of transfer is so reliable."

- J. B. Steane, GRAMOPHONE, Feb., 1995
