This new collection of 30 songs and arias (based on the "standard 24," together with other pieces typical of the Italian style) recreates the clearer and cleaner - and easier to play - accompaniment style of the 17th and 18th centuries. In addition to authentic editions of the music, the book contains invaluable information which will help singers interpret and perform this repertoire: word-by-word translations (Italian-English) of the original text, English singing translations; IPA transliterations of the Italian text; historical notes about each song. A CD, containing recordings of the piano accompaniments, is included with the book. "I am delighted to see Parisotti's ubiquitous anthology recast with such learned courtesy. Roger Nichols has shed all outdated features, adding instead invaluable information and suggestions: this choice of pieces celebrates even better the genius of Italian baroque song, and I hope to see it used everywhere!" --Emma Kirkby.

    Interesting to compare with the "Yellow Peril" (Schirmer). Some songs FAR more complex. Bit of a shock to some of my students.
