Cantolopera is a series that proposes a completely new way of approaching Italy's great vocal repertoire. The three Napoli Recital volumes extend the large catalog for the Cantolopera series of the most famous Neapolitan songs. The songs are provided in piano/vocal score and are accompanied by a CD containing the sung versions to provide an example and a guide plus the basic orchestral arrangement for practice purposes. The volumes also contain the lyrics to the songs in Italian and English, as well as notes on the Compagnia d'Opera Italiana orchestra and the performers.

    The guys at Cantalopera provide a really good package. Not only do you get full orchestral backing tracks and demo tracks for seven songs, you also get translations of the songs and some notes. The two songs "Funiculi funicula" and "O sole mio" alone make this product worth buying. My...

    only complaint is that the written introductions do not always match the recorded music, making it difficult to judge the singer's entry. These songs are such fun to sing. Slightly easier than operatic arias, but still the sort of thing to impress your audience - or simply to enjoy yourself.
