Michael Pilkington: English Solo Song Volume 2 - Gurney, Ireland, Quilter And Warlock

Books

Catalogue No: 0905210913
Format: Books | Reference
This series, which aims to cover the whole repertoire of English song, is designed not merely as a practical guide for singers and teachers but also to be of use to the ever-increasing number of students wishing to study particular areas of the subject - the music, the poetry or both.

Each piece features a full description and commentary, providing detailed information of the song's origin and nature. This is an invaluable anthology, presenting the enormous repertoire available but unfortunately little known to those who should be most concerned - English singers themselves.

This edition is a comprehensive guide to all the songs, whether in print or not, of 4 of the most important composers of English song: Ivor Gurney, John Ireland, Roger Quilter and Peter Warlock.

The description of each song includes its tonality, range, meter, and duration.

      Bought as a present so can't comment on the content suffice to say it looks very detailed giving clear and succinct information on each of the songs which I know will be very useful for an at-a-glance understanding of the song & its performance requirements. The title is printed on order request and as such comes paper backed & ring bound but its print quality is good and for the price is more than acceptable.
