"[Armida Parsi-Pettinella's] is the kind of voice that we long to her again in our theatres, even though the style in which she sings has gone out of fashion. She is a genuine contralto, happy also in mezzo-soprano roles because she has fully developed all three registers: her chest tones are rich and full, properly supported and not barked or forced in any way, her medium register is warm, her head register beautifully rounded and, if she is not pushing for too big a sound, bell-like and almost of soprano quality."
