enjoy the woman [Amara] who stepped in for her."

Amara was no shabby substitute.  I heard her sing the Forza Leonora in 
1975 and Price sing the same opera in 1977.  Amara sang it better than 
Price did, hand's down, and she was more convincing dramatically, 
although Price's voice at its best certainly had more glamour (for want of a 
better word) and a more distinctive timbre. 

"Dare you say" Amara?  Yes!! Anyone should.  She was a great singer, 
much underrated in her time (as the great Florence Easton was in hers).
