  • September 17, 2020 Beware of edition-check with your teacher!

    The old 24 Italian songs or newer edition 28 Italian songs (more scholarly with translations and historical descriptions) are interchangeable. This 26 Song edition has some different edits which make it impossible to use interchangeably with the others. During covid on Zoom, many songs are unusable for my students. Check...

    with your teacher before buying this book! (I'm a voice teacher with 20 years experience)

    I really like this book because of how well it is written and arranged. I love how each song has background information, correct pronunciations, and English translations. The only thing I wish it had was a CD that played the song as well as the accompaniment.

    I use this book often as a voice teacher because the Italian is so accessible, especially to those new to Italian repertoire. The pronunciation keys are excellent and the book also has great background information on the pieces and composers.
