“A finer performance than this would not be a song of earth”, wrote the Record Guide (Collins, 1955) of this legendary performance which was recorded in Vienna in May 1952. … And beyond this there is Ferrier, an artist born to sing this music and singing it here at a time so close to her own death as to make this a real, truly harrowing song of farewell.”
– Gramophone
“Ferrier’s recording of three of the Rückert Lieder, heartfelt and monumental…magnetically intense.”
– Penguin Guide
