The Musical Theatre Essentials series represents the ultimate selection of songs from the stage. Volumes are available for Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, Tenor and Baritone/Bass, either with or without accompaniment CDs. Unique song lists are provided in the books for each vocal range, including this volume for Baritone/Bass.
Newly edited and engraved with Vocal line and Piano accompaniment, the two Baritone/Bass volumes from the Musical Theatre Essentials series provide a golden opportunity to celebrate the music of the stage, containing songs from classic and modern musicals such as: Cabaret, The Lion King, Hairspray, South Pacific and Les Miserables.
This is a nice selection of songs, and the CD is good. I have a few grumbles, it would have been good to have a singer on the CD, not just piano. Some of the songs have a few high notes that might be difficult for bass. Empty Chairs at Empty Tables has a top G. Why do a lot of music publishers have hard spines on their books,which means you can't keep them open on the music stand or piano. Boy that annoys me! All in all though this is well worth buying if you want to practice some enjoyable songs. Anonymous
