Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A voice of great warmth and purity, particularly beautiful in the upper range, with an uncommonly sure technique in both lyric and florid music: this is evident. In the tranquil "Laudate Dominum" of the Vesperae and the andante middle aria of the Exsultate [Kiri Te Kanawa] is entirely lovely."

-- Gramophone [3/1986] Reviewing Philips 412 873
