    1) Claudia Muzio!
    2) Germaine Lubin
    3) Maggie Teyte
    4) Salomea Krushelnytska: super oldie, but when you "get" her, you will be amazed. Steanne in his great book implied that three most imaginative sopranos were Krushelnytska, Muzio and Callas!
    5) Elisabeth Schwarzkopf
    6) Frida Leider
    7) Victoria de los Angeles
    8) Oda Slobodskaya: IMO the greatest Russian soprano on record, easily surpassed Vishnevskaya.
    9) Ingeborg Hallstein
    10) Renata Scotto
