    I am an older adult who has recently began to take voice lessons. The arrangements by Britten are fun as well as challenging. The songs are proper for performances and recitals.

    Difficulty Level:
  • May 04, 2011 Wonderful.

    These are some of my favorite pieces to do at recitals. They fit in nicely with the more classical pieces and don't feel out of place in the recital hall. They are uniquely arranged by a wonderful composer and this new edition comes highly recommended.
