Whatever the [de]merits of Mr. Lane, one might wish to point out that he
reports having studied with two of history's greatest Wagnerians, the
quintessential heldenbariton Friedrich Schorr, who died in the
mid-'50's, and Alexander Kipnis, who barely taught after that same time
[and some say taught very badly, in contrast to his great singing]. May
we thus conclude that Mr. Lane, even if a great singer. is now a bit
long in tooth to be before the public? And, by the way, where are his
credits? Where, when and how did he sing? Just asking.
