London Singer and singing teacher
- 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.
