Lovers, Lasses and Spring complements The First Book of Soprano Solos and The First Book of Soprano Solos Part II. It is a selection of beginning coloratura songs, to be used to teach vocal agility, and comes with online audio access to piano accompaniments. The songs are all in English, and the ranges tend to explore the higher end of the soprano voice, using melismas and scale passages within a moderately florid style of singing. The style of music in Lovers, Lasses and Spring permits a freedom of singing that allows the voice to soar, something that sopranos really enjoy at this stage of development.

    vocal coach found very valuable. It is meant for very high and acrobatic voices, and I recommend this for people who are very skilled and are looking for something fun and challenging.

    I looked everywhere for the song, A Heart That's Free, and this music book was the only one I could find it in. It is beautifully written and is a challenge for my daughter's advanced singing voice.
