The book is an enjoyable read, answering questions and clarifying things I'd previously read about Shirley. Contrary to an age-old belief, you can be good at two things; in Shirley's case, her voice was suited for both mezzo and soprano. Some singers face non-elective retirement in their early 50s -- that Shirley sang into her early 60s suggests no harm from soprano roles.
I was struck by the sound of a pipe organ, and spent most of each Mass turned around, staring at the choir loft and being told to turn around and pay attention to the service. I later became a musician for a while, and an organist. Imagine my thrill, when in I emailed Shirley, via her website, and she responded.

And, imagine my sadness when she told me her cousin was now deceased. I now have two bookmarks for my next reading. Shirley told her students that they have to make their own careers. View 1 comment. Feb 10, Carrie Slager rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-i-bought. She freely speaks of the incidents she had with other singers where she was at fault, reflects on her rocky relationships with others at times and speaks frankly about her vocal problems in the 70s.
Maybe it was just excellent editors, but Ms. Verrett strikes me as a very humble woman in her writing. I Never Walked Alone is not just a collection of amusing incidents, but a full chronicle of her childhood and career.
Verrett speaks for at least a paragraph on almost all of the productions she was in and it really gives you a great picture of such a talented woman. Jan 20, George rated it liked it Recommends it for: fans only.

I am a big fan of Shirley Verrett's, but I have to say it took me forever to finish reading it like six months. This is especially true of the last part of the book, where the beginning of the book showed more of her life story.
