Reviews

‘I have nothing but admiration for the assurance and agility with which [Jennifer Vyvyan] negotiates these vocal precipices … The tight little vibrato in her voice is completely in place in moods of passion and anguish … Harry Newstone’s accompaniment is unfailingly alert, and the recording excellent.’ Gramophone, October 1960
