An outstanding and varied collection of twentieth century vocal music. Songs by 20th century masters including Bartók, Britten, Copland and Stravinsky as well as newly commissioned songs. The songs have been chosen to suit singers of all ages and experience and performance notes are included.
"I hope that this book will become a firm favourite for many people, whether they are pupils or teachers, as it has some rare qualities. It is a singing book that is full of variety, but not an uncomfortable mishmash, containing a balance in terms of ability and challenge, that will hopefully bring these unforgivably overlooked pieces to a fresh audience. More please!"
"I use this book constantly with students, particularly those in the 11 - 15 year age category. The selection of songs is varied and those that I have used seem to bring out the best in the young voices.
It is particularly lovely to have a collection like this available that has so many songs that are set both for ABRSM and Trinity College exams.
