- Original language texts, NO horrible, outdated English translations to be sung. Every song is prefaced by an accurate translation, plus good, brief, historical info. Translation of all significant words in the songs is printed in small Italic font below the notes -- ingenious !
- Rather too many tragic love-songs for your average 12 -year-old taking abrsm Grade 3, and this album is on the Grade 3 list. Older students will like this sel -ection, in Italian, German & French, but most of the said tragic love-songs were written for men to sing.
