This graded songbook will help you develop the skills required to sing in a foreign language. An invaluable resource for all singing students and teachers.
This edition is for intermediate level low voices, and contains songs in French, German, Italian and Spanish. A detailed pronunciation guide is included using the International Phonetic Alphabet. Each song includes background information, as well as technical and musical teaching points.
The accompanying CD boasts a full pronunciation guide by native speakers, as well as full recordings of all accompaniments for practice and performance.
Clear text, well laid out. Several set pieces from ABRSM grade 7 syllabus included. CD pronunciation is spoken rather than sung style (e.g. -e should be sounded on ends of French words). CD pace/speed is reasonable. Anonymous

Highly recommended study book for serious amateur singers and music college students. It has a great deal of information about each song; pronunciation pointers in 4 languages and a CD with 'mother tongue' speakers reading the text as well as accompaniments and the songs. I will definitely be using this series with my advanced students. Anonymous
