“To find a singer this versatile, one would probably have to look at another vocal category and make comparisons with Lilli Lehmann….[Urlus] was an exceptionally consistent performer, whose vocal longevity permitted him to sing Wagner well into his 60s. He expressed drama musically as only the best opera singers are able to.”

- Benjamin Ivry, CLASSIC RECORD COLLECTOR, Winter, 2001

"Urlus' voice was a powerful, fully developed dramatic tenor. The dark, almost baritonal, quality of the lower range was well-suited to the music of Wagner and enabled him to declaim with the right intensity and yet without sacrificing a good legato style."
