CRITIC REVIEW:

“…one of the last century’s most eloquent and stylish singers….[McCormack’s compilations, above, are] superbly annotated by John Scarry [covering] mostly operatic fare, and Ward Marston’s transfers are superb, the voice ‘lifting’ from the shellac in a most exciting way.”

- Rob Cowan, Gramophone, May, 2005
