    Difficulty Level:
  • August 10, 2011 good songs but low keys for a high voice

    Originally bought this for Gurney's sleep, but found it was in a lowered key, which makes it pretty much useless for a high voice. Most of the songs are reasonably low in the voice, more in the mid-range, though the songs themselves are a good selection.

    I assigned Ned Rorem's "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair" to a tenor but I could not find a high version of the song anywhere until the collection ART SONG IN ENGLISH became available. I ordered it and recieved it within a few days. I love the collection and...

    I look forward to using in my college voice studio for years to come. I teach voice at a small Baptist college in Georgia.
