Review of the first performance of Tiefland in Athens with Delendas and Callas (then Kaloieropoulos). The passus about Delendas is highlighted and says: "Anton Delendas gab dem Hirten Pedro die Naivität des Naturburschen und die in unverminderter Frische durchgehaltene Leuchtkraft seines biegsamen Tenors." From the Nazi newspaper Griechische Nachrichten, 22.04.1944
