Description

Sergius Kagen's encyclopedic guide to music for the voice has been a standard reference work for singers and teachers for nearly thirty years. For each of several thousand works, the singer can find the compass and tessitura, the vocal type to which the song is suited, and remarks on the character or challenges of the piece, with occasional advice to the accompanist. Headnotes provide background information on some major composers and important song cycles. This single volume helps the performer find works by hundreds of composers from Europe and America, from the Renaissance through the mid-twentieth century, and in genres ranging from folk airs to bel canto. Entries are arranged by composer within larger categories: songs and airs before the nineteenth century, songs of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, folk songs, and operatic extracts. An index of composers makes access to listings even more convenient.show more
