Piano, Vocal (Soprano) - Difficulty: medium-difficult to difficult
The Vocal Library Soprano. Edited by Richard Walters. The Vocal Library. Baroque and Classical Period. Collection. Vocal melody, piano accompaniment, translations, introductory text and lyrics. 223 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.747058).

Item Number: HL.747058
ISBN 0793525055. With vocal melody, piano accompaniment, translations, introductory text and lyrics. Baroque and Classical Period. 8.5x11 inches.

This is the most serious and useful collection yet published of solo arias from oratorios, masses and cantatas. The literature is confined to work by major composers, and by-passes the dated oratorio literature found in previous collections. The most famous music is here, and so is interesting and less famous music by masters. There are new music engravings for each aria, and extensive historical notes and translations. Solo instrumental obbligato parts, which can be cut from the book, are included on appropriate selections.

    This is a good collection of standard oratorio arias for soprano. What a shame there is no accompaniment CD.

  • June 03, 2011 Oratorio Anthology - Soprano

    Great music, awful type setting. The words are tiny and far from the notes. The measures are too spread out, necessitating huge amounts of page turns.

  • May 27, 2011 The Oratorio Anthrology

    This is a very good book for those who love the sacred classics in their original language. Unlike other books that have the usual standards, many of the pieces here are the works of the Great Masters, Bach, Handel, etc. and some of the works are from the pre Baroque...

    period. There is also at least one piece suited for the Coloratura Soprano. All in all I recommend this book.

  • November 13, 2008 Nice collection

    This is a very good collection for the Oratorio singer or any Soprano who is called upon to sing solos. I'm sure there will be someone who finds some selection missing but it has worked for my purposes. I've already used this book.
