CRITIC REVIEW:

"Among the items unpublished in their time are some claimed as first releases....Both duets with Dame Maggie Teyte are there....McCormack had, of course, to 'manage' what remained of his voice, as he did with consummate skill. Range and volume were very limited, but what impresses in these late recordings is the mellowness of tone, and the transfers faithfully preserve it."

- J.B. Steane, GRAMOPHONE, Feb., 1996
