"Who better to represent the old school than Pol Plançon with his instrumental-like legato line and a coloratura technique to put many a soprano to shame?"
- Vivian A. Liff, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, May/June, 2005
"Pol Plançon…has never been equaled by any subsequent bass for technical perfection….[His] noble, effortlessly sculpted phrases pour out like a mellow vintage red wine, each note seamlessly melting into the next. Perfection."
- Christopher Norton-Welsh, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2007
"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
