Beautiful singing throughout, and all of the recordings have excellent audio.

Une décennie miraculeuse dans la vie d'une diva exceptionnellement douée: voilà le cadeau de ce coffret magistral, d'une intelligence et d'un style à couper le souffle . . . On connaît tout l'excellente diseuse, servie par un souffle et un timbre cuivré, sensuel, souverain, en particulier dans la mort de Didon des "Troyens" de Berlioz . . . S'il n'était qu'un seul cd de cette compilation très nécessaire pour tous ceux qui lyricophile, apprécient les beaux timbres et l'élégance vocale comme l'intensité dramatique, écoutez dans l'enchaînement des 18 airs, le cd6: Airs de Verdi (son grand maître) et Wagner, puis 6 lieder de Brahms . . . car outre ses performances comme mezzo ample et dramatique à l'opéra, Grace Bumbry fut aussi une diseuse hors pair, née pour le lied, calibrant son phénoménal métal à l'intimisme pudique et allusif du chambrisme germanique . . . Notre compte rendu rend peu compte de l'apport inestimable d'une immense artiste: ces 8 cd sont incontournables pour tous ceux que la fusion subtilité et puissance intéresse, intrigue, subjugue.
