    "When Lawrence appeared in an all-Wagner program with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra [Sir Neville] Cardus said her singing of Brunnhilde's farewell from Gotterdammerung was as great an example of Wagnerian singing as Sydney was likely to hear in a lifetime." -- Reference: Entertaining Australia : an illustrated history / Katharine Brisbane (ed.). Sydney : Currency Press, 1991 (p.257)
    Just as Florence Austral was able to alternate with Frida Leider, Marjorie Lawrence was of a calibre to alternate with Kirsten Flagstad at the Metropolitan in 1937 -- Reference: Cantabile-Subito website (online) / Andrea Suhm-Binder
