These four fantastic cabaret songs are splendid examples of the genre. They not only provide ample evidence of the composer's and poet's wit and high spirits, but are also wholly characteristic of a particular kind of vernacular music that resulted from the collaboration of two brilliantly endowed young men in the thirties. Arranged for Piano and voice.
A wonderful way to enjoy Britten in a less formal environment and introduce his work to a wider audience.

The voice range of these songs is wide. It extends from F bass clef to top D treble clef. Anonymous
Brilliant, thoughtful poetry to fabulous piano accompaniment. Calls for quite a large range ('Johnny' F below treble clef to C above treble clef!) but can be sung by anyone with the desire to do some seriously sexy cabaret! Anonymous

I have never thought about singing cabaret songs but this book has opened my eyes to the possibility of fun on the concert stage. I am thoroughly enjoying looking and learning some of these songs. It is tremendous fun. Anonymous
