. . . Souzay has long been a byword for great Lieder singing on the most exalted plain . . . With very few other singers will one hear such scrupulously sculpted vocal artistry. The voice itself is light, almost feathery, in timbre . . . It is technically secure, and used with the utmost precision and elegance. Souzay's exquisite diction and idiomatic pronunciation put many native German singers to shame . . . Phrasing, pitch, and rhythm are immaculate. There is an uncanny ability to shed a specifically refracted ray of vocal light on every syllable of text in a way that illuminates it with the utmost clarity, while the delivery is as natural and unaffected as breathing itself . . . glowingly recommended . . .
