"Miss Tourel is mistress of a wider range of coloration in all ranges and at all volumes than any other singer I have ever heard....Her legato skips are the kind of bel canto one dreams about....Her musicianship in every domain is so thorough that from the whole technical and intellectual aspect her work belongs clearly with that of the great virtuosos of music....Miss Tourel is, I believe, unequaled among living singers for the high concentration in one artist of vocal skill, sound musicianship, and stylistic flexibility."
- Virgil Thomson, NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE, 21 Jan., 1942
