"Who better to represent the old school than Pol Plançon with his instrumental-like legato line and a coloratura technique to put many a soprano to shame?"

- Vivian A. Liff, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, May/June, 2005

"Pol Plançon…has never been equaled by any subsequent bass for technical perfection….[His] noble, effortlessly sculpted phrases pour out like a mellow vintage red wine, each note seamlessly melting into the next. Perfection."

- Christopher Norton-Welsh, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2007

“[Truesound] transfers have been an absolute revelation to me….Amazingly, Christian Zwarg has managed to unlock the sound of these recordings in such a way as to present [voices] such as I have never heard before. Here the sound has a sheen and glow which is quite beautiful. It is as if an old masterpiece painting has been cleaned and restored, allowing rays of brilliant light to emerge….”

- Davyd Booth, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2012
