The KING of French Lyric Tenors
FABIAN E. ROBLES | Bayamon, Puerto Rico (USA) Puerto Rico | 05/21/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Villabella is a Lyric Tenor of an incredible refinement and style. His is one of the most beautiful tenor voices heard. He is THE KING of the mezza-voce, as high to high D, and he doesn't recurs to falsetto as other tenors to create this unique ethereal effect. His voice is lyric, but sounds full and homogemeous throughout his entire range. He's certainly an example for ANY tenor or any singer. This is what SINGING is supposed to be."
Miguel Villabella - a virtually unknown (in America) French
Sheldon Hoffman | Larchmont, NY | 02/23/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Miguel Villabella (1892-1954), born in the Basque region spent his whole career in France. He possessed a beautiful lyric tenor voice of wide range and no break in any part of his range. He had power and sang with great feeling. His enunciation was faultless. Listen to his recording of the aria "Agnes du paradis" from Gounod's "Mireille" and you'll be won over."
