Language of Song: Advanced (High Voice)

Books and CDs | Voice, High Voice

Publisher: Faber Music
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

The ability to sing in foreign languages is a much-needed skill for singers, but few vocal training resources tackle this aspect comprehensively in one book. With this in mind, ABRSM examiners and professional singers Heidi Pegler and Nicola-Jane Kemp have written The language of song, a graded series of songbooks that provide classic song repertoire, carefully selected to develop the vital skills required to sing in a foreign language.

An invaluable resource for all singing students and teachers, each song gives both a literal and poetic translation of each text, a detailed pronunciation guide using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) guide and background information on the songs as well as technical and musical teaching points. The accompanying CD provides the text for each song spoken by a native speaker - expert language consultants who specialise in coaching singers - as well as a recording of each song accompaniment by international pianist Iain Harrington.

Not just ideal for those taking graded singing exams, these are invaluable for singers of any age exploring international song repertoire up to university and college level.

Learn to sing this wonderful foreign language repertoire confidently and effectively and celebrate the Language of Song!

          Good range of repertoire and the CDs are really useful.
          Not really anything that can be changed... just how difficult it is singing along to a CD rather than a live accompanist - especially for judging pauses, rubato etc. BUT the CDs are an incredibly useful tool for helping learn the songs/practicing sight singing etc.

          I was extremely pleased with this publication. It has everything required for the advanced student wishing to sit the grade 8 exam. I found no need to look elsewhere for suitable material. The phonetic translations are particularly useful as well as accompaniment backing tracks for both language and song practice. A spiral bound publication would be a bonus however to allow for easy page turns.

          Very good book - especially because it has a CD with all the songs spoken in the language. Very useful for those trying to master new languages for singing. IT has a good selection of pieces, and being able to sing along to the accompaniment is very good when learning.
