"The original Victor recordings were persistently boxy. Nimbus have done a deal to open them up without adding much resonance, and the voice rings out freshly into the room ..."  Alan Blyth, Gramophone

"...there is barely a trace of noise beyond a comforting purr in the background. And as the soprano raises her voice...reproduction remains as firmas one could wish without a hint of distortion...quite considerable dynamic ranges are impressively registered...On balance this has to be the most impressive collection of Flagstad's pre war studio work issued to date."  Simon Tresize, Opera Now
