Reviews from the performance:

Miss Svedaite remains firmly in the excellent soprano class with a strong, pure tone. Many excellent floated tones and the couple high C’s. She is an experienced, seasoned soprano of considerable vocal skill. When you go to a Ct Lyric Opera performance and Miss Svedaite is singing, you know you are going to hear high quality singing. Sunday afternoon was no exception. The Agnus Dei with her and Miss Petrie was lovely. I just love this movement of the Requiem with its accapella opening and the modulations between minor and major. The Libera me, the soprano and chorus forte at the conclusion, particularly effective.
