    This has a good range of pieces, some which are in every anthology and others which are more unusual so quite helpful to expand repertoire.
    The edition is very disappointing. It is just a collation of reprints from earlier (presumably out of copyright) editions, including an aria with an unrealised figured bass accompaniment - how many singers or singing teachers can sight-read figured bass notation?! It has cursory performance notes, no pronunciation guide, each piece is in a different typeset, some are easier to read than others. It is very disappointing for the cost.

    I’m still going through the book but think I willl be able, as an alto, to sing nearly all the songs. A good variety, from serious to sprightly. I’m enjoying singing them and extending my knowledge.
    A few too many in a foreign tongue without an English interpretation. A challenge!
