‘The Melbourne Academy Boys Choir, boys of 10 to 14 years sang with great ease the complex pieces of music which even adult singers might find difficult to perform: the boys' performance was indeed of a very high standard. The Kod·ly piece ‘Gólya, Gólya Gilice’ sung in Hungarian brought tears to many an eye.’ (Petőfi Népe Kecskemét)
