“...Sutherland is much what she would be for the next quarter-century: the finest vocal technician of her time….her vocalism is wondrous to the ear; to this day, it remains unchallenged in terms of security and reliability. She commands admiration.”
- Paul Jackson, SIGN-OFF FOR THE OLD MET, p.391
"In her own time, there was a tendency to take Sutherland for granted, so consistent were her high standards of technique, musicianship and, yes, acting. Her total command of the stage was always formidable. No recording can really give an impression of how big the voice was….it had an astonishing and physically thrilling impact."
- Patrick O’Connor, GRAMOPHONE, Jan., 2007
