“I suspect one would have to go back to Lilli Lehmann to find another soprano who has delivered the music with such perfection of phrasing and shading, so sure a sense of design, such subtlety and such nobility of expression, and so firm a control of her vocal resources.”

- Pitts Sanborn, THE NEW YORK TIMES, 23 Feb., 1934

"The intensity of [Leider's] singing is unmistakeable at the great moments….a singer with presence, and one is aware of it, majestic and human throughout. Leider was an adored singer….”

- J. B. Steane, THE GRAND TRADITION, pp.240-41
