"This book is not a critical review of the records but a listing of all the items, so far located, from commercial records to broadcasts held by the BBC and other broadcasting organisations, and tapes and acetates in private hands....There is a very pleasant foreword by Dame Janet Baker and a good selection of well-reproduced photographs, many of which I have not seen before."

- Brian Gould, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 1992

“The conductor Bruno Walter once said that the two greatest musical experiences of his life were knowing Kathleen Ferrier and Mahler – in that order….Her singing was of such rare beauty: beauty of expression, beauty of voice, purity, and beauty of personality. It was one of the greatest impressions in my life.”

- Vivien Schweitzer, THE NEW YORK TIMES, 8 July, 2012

“This book concentrates,in immense detail,on the singer's recordings & recording sessions. Dame Janet Baker & Winifred Ferrier introduce the book.”
