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.

  • March 19, 2009 What a feast!

    Roger Quilter's songs are not 'in fashion' today with the exception of one or two. This volume brings an excellent selection of his output, other than those published separately and is therefore worthy of purchase and study by student and professional alike. May his work be heard more in...

    future as a result of this collection!

  • July 28, 2008 A fine Quilter collection

    Singers of art song in English love Roger Quilter for his memorable, singable melodies and rich accompaniments. This big collection is very welcome - it includes many of his most popular sets of songs, and as a bonus a few of his settings of old songs. It is not quite The...

    Complete Roger Quilter, the most notable omissions being "Go, Lovely Rose" and "Music, when soft voices die" - the latter is available in David Owen Norris's selection of 18 Quilter songs. The present volume is not available in Europe at present, which seems bizarre as Quilter was a very English composer - a contemporary of Vaughan Williams and Percy Grainger.

    Great Book - but then that's the music! Some of the transpositions are in more awkward keys, but what did I expect?

  • July 07, 2008 Roger Quilter, a songwriter worth discovering

    I was swept away when I first heard the three Shakespeare Songs by Roger Quilter, sung by my hero Bryn Terfel. They are stunningly beautiful. The songs turned out to be absolutely feasible for a lay singer. Roger Quilter is definitely a composer worth discovering. I will certainly sing my...
