"Amato's was a splendidly firm and ringing voice; in his best days the top, up to high A, made a great impression. On records it is almost impossible to confuse it with any other baritone, for there is a bell-like and plangent quality that is wholly individual....The Doge's romanza from Act One of I Due Foscari is a beautifully composed piece of cantabile singing, the high F's coming out just as Verdi ordered - dolce."
- Michael Scott, THE RECORD OF SINGING
