With a graceful gift for lyrical vocal writing, English composer Roger Quilter (1877-1953) created a rich body of art songs. Very few composers working in English have matched his achievement of a living body of beloved, relevant, literate repertoire. The strong melodies and natural phrasing make his compositions perfect literature for the progressing singer. There has never before this publication been a significant collection of Quilter. This new edition conveniently and economically collects 55 songs, all in clear, new music engravings and in two keys (with original keys noted). Many of the songs have never been published in transposition before this edition. This collection features a biography of the composer and notes on the songs.

A Wonderful Collection for Singers
These Quilter songs are a treasure chest of music, both for those who knpow his songs, as I thought I did, and for those new to Quilter, an often underrated English composer of the 20th Century. The collection contains old favourites, which I have known for many years in concerts...

For Roger Quilter fans, this book is a must-have. All of the popular Quilter pieces you've heard in recitals and competitions are there (Love's Philosophy, Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal, etc.), plus many I had never heard before. Wonderful book to add to your 20th century repertoire.
