I disagree with that. Horne had not acquired  her trademark sound at  that 
point and sounded more soprano like back then. What impressed me was not  
only how Horne sang it, but hers sense  Bellini-esque bel canto style.  Sorry, 
Cossotto may have been a superior Amneris to Horne, but Horne sang  circles 
around Cossotto as Adalgisa. I don't what what they ate for breakfast  back 
then, but that was the period when Pavarotti, Horne, and Sutherland sang  
their best IMO.
