What the Critics are Saying about Courtenay

“Budd, who performed everything from memory, was not only beautifully expressive but impeccable in her delivery of every word and note.”

“Ms. Budd offers the highest 'goosebump' index of just about any soprano I've ever heard: I've been a rabid fan of hers for years. She packs her pure, silvery tone with almost too much emotion to bear. After she finished, I realized there were tears in my eyes - and that's hardly the first time she's done that to me.”

“Budd sand with a welcome mixture of tonal purity, musical intelligence and emotional intensity, a lovely artist.”
