        The fact that this comes in both low and high voice versions is a real bonus, as I find it difficult to find books with items in appropriate keys for alto/contralto/mezzo and baritone/bass voices.

        The phonetic versions and language guides are fantastic.
        It would be helpful if each song were marked with the appropriate ABRSM and Trinity grades. (I've done so in my books.)

        Also, the "Beginner" and "Intermediate" designations are somewhat misleading. For example "Sonntag" is ABRSM grade 6, but is in the "Beginner" book.

        The CD is good
        The spoken words are faint. It is easier to turn the volume down than to have no volume at all.

        Another dream book! Like the others, this book is educationally excellent and I wonder why I have never bought it before!

        This is a brilliant series! I use these books often as a teacher. Well thought out selection of songs for young singers and sensitive piano accompaniments; my only complaint would be the speed of the diction coach tracks on the CD; they need to be spoken a bit slower for those with little or no knowledge of the languages used.

        Excellent publication. My daughter is Grade 5 level and is enjoying learning the songs in different languages. A good variety of languages and styles.
