Alan Blyth
Gramophone, November 2001

"This is a model of what a portrait of a famous singer should be. Done with the full co-operation of Horne herself, it relates her life story in just enough detail from her fascinating start, making bootleg recordings of popular songs, through her leap to fame when she dubbed for Dorothy Dandridge in Carmen Jones, through to her triumphs on stage in Handel Rossini and so much else."

Patrick O'Connor
Gramophone, November 2001

"What makes this unmissable is Jerry Handley's perfromance as Jim. From every oint of view, dramatic, vocal and emotional, he encompasses the part in such a complete wa that one is totally gripped.... Dennis Russell Davies conducts a searing account of the score from the pit."
