Notes and Editorial Reviews

Caballe's compatriot, Victoria de Los Angeles, is heard in a song recital (® CD CDM7 69502-2: 61 minutes: ADD) with orchestral accompaniment. Benefiting from this are Reynaldo Hahn's L'enamouree, a delicious sugar-plum of an encorepiece, the Montsalvatge Canciones Negros with the irresistible softer and ever-softer lullaby, and the Carceleras of Chapi which calls for, and gets, an earthiness and challenge which were often surprising in so restrained and affectionate a singer.

-- Gramophone [10/1988]
