"Since her 1961 recording, Sutherland's detailed understanding was intensified . . . The cast is first-rate." (Penguin Guide)

"As Callas's star waned so Joan Sutherland's rose. Her Lucia is different, moving the heart through beauty of tone. Sutherland recorded the role four times - the first two have vocal freshness but the third (1971) is best." BBC Music
