This landmark publication includes 61 songs, combining the contents of the seven published books of Britten folksong arrangements in High and Low Voice editions. Some of the songs have never before been transposed. The songs of Volume 6, for voice and guitar, have been transcribed for voice and piano for this edition.
“Editor Richard Walters has done a splendid job of bringing this collection to publication, not only assembling the material but also writing an excellent, informative, and thought provoking Preface that gives insight into Britten's work...Having all these songs together in one volume is a real boon to voice teachers and students alike, not to mention accompanists...All music libraries and voice studios will want to own this collection.”--Journal of Singing
