"...outstandingly beautiful, so moving and deeply felt" (Gramophone)

"Kathleen Ferrier (April 22, 1912-October 5, 1953) touched the hearts of millions with her extraordinary voice, a deep, rich contralto, the like of which we rarely encounter these days. The intensity of her singing, the beauty of her voice, the shortness of her life and the sadness of her death from cancer all combined to create an impression that guaranteed for artistic longevity." Gramophone

"Just a single phrase of Kathleen Ferrier's singing reveals a voice of extraordinary power and expression." Guardian
