"A follow-up to Nigel Douglas' popular and successful LEGENDARY VOICES, this volume boasts twelve more singers, their private lives and public careers, plus critical comment on their recorded works. Once again his pantheon covers the full range of voices and the whole repertoire from Tosca to Tannhäuser, from Lieder to light operetta. Artists include Maria Callas, Feodor Chaliapin, Kathleen Ferrier, Beniamino Gigli, Maria Jeritza, John McCormack, Lauritz Melchior, Claudia Muzio, Titta Ruffo, Elisabeth Schumann, Conchita Supervia, and Richard Tauber.
"Nigel Douglas is a rara avis: he's a tenor who writes intelligently, he's a fan who remembers objectively, and he's a biographer who has something new to say about his subjects rather than roasting the same tired old chestnuts one more time."
- Raymond Tuttle, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Nov. / Dec., 1995
