I don't remember the screaming at the end, but I think Mme. Amara is wonderful throughout that recording.  I'm sorry that Mme. Price dropped out of it, but I really enjoy the woman who stepped in for her.

Apropos the Elsa for RCA, I have a distinct recollection of Price saying to
an interviewer about the part that she finally decided "it was just 'troppo
pesante', honey." Which I don't think it would have been, but after the
'Fanciulla' she must have thought very carefully about what she would and
wouldn't do.  

Painful in that recording to be reminded of the great Rita Gorr screaming
those A's at the end.
