CRITIC REVIEW:

“[Dufranne] was clearly an exceptional artist with a strong, well-focused voice able to sing tessiture easily and accurately….Many students of great vocal art have expressed the opinion that the era during which Dufranne distinguished himself has passed forever and that his style and finesse, especially in the French repertoire, is no longer available. He will long be remembered as a giant among great artists.”

– Richard T. Soper, BELGIAN OPERA HOUSES AND SINGERS, p.362
