"The great American contralto scarcely needs an introduction. Her rich, vibrant voice, unique in its colors and timbre, was coupled with excellent musicianship, a seriousness of purpose, and depths of emotional involvement."
- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Sept./Oct., 2007
“It is difficult now to separate the voice and the woman from the almost marbleized monument that Anderson became long before she died in 1993….America’s traveling good will ambassador, a special United Nations delegate, the subject of numerous television documentaries, and a beloved icon.”
- Peter G. Davis, THE AMERICAN OPERA SINGER, p.340
