Scarlatti), O leggiadri occhi belli (anonymous), Intorno all'idol mio (Cesti), Delizie contente, che l'alma beate (Cavalli). With IPA, word for word translations, and historical information on each song and composer. Audio recordings of piano accompaniments and recorded pronunciation lessons can be accessed online by using the unique code inside each book. The audio files can be streamed or downloaded.

  • August 23, 2011 Beware of the CD

    I bought this package to sing one of the songs at an outdoor wedding and have the piano accompaniment downloaded to my iPod and then plugged into the sound system. This CD will ONLY play on old-fashioned CD players like a "boombox"-not on iTunes on my computer. So...

    it was impossible to download as an MP3 and then put it on my iPod. It must have been encoded to prevent this or cheaply pressed. So it was useless to me.

  • October 02, 2008 Fine update of a classic

    This compilation is a fresh take on, and addition to, the classic Schirmer collection of Italian songs of the 17th and 18th centuries saved for posterity through the efforts of Alessandro Parisotti in the late 19th century. The arrangements have been freshly set in a much more readable typeface; freed...

    of much unfortuante editorial tinkering found in prior editions; provided far better translations; and most of all, enhanced greatly by the addition of Martha Gerhart's superb diction coaching and agile accompaniments for practice purposes. The good news: an old teaching favorite has come into the digital age. The bad news: there's no excuse for poor diction now!
