This edition is generally thought to supplement, or even replace the old G. Schirmer "Twenty-Four Italian Songs and Arias of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries." The repertoire is almost identical, however there is much more information in this edition, such as literal, word for word translations for each song. . This alone makes it an extremely useful and invaluable tool for classical singers. The original manuscript is also included for many of the songs.

This edition also contains pronunciation guides, background information about each song and composer and the "poetic thought" behind each song. There are also suggestions for style-appropriate ornamentation for each song, although the ornamentation is written in smaller notes alongside of the melodic line and is sometimes hard to decipher.

Probably the biggest difference between the two editions is the piano accompaniment. Paton's accompaniment is less elaborate and more authentic. Because it often does not double the vocal line, it may be slightly more difficult for less-experienced singers.

All in all, this edition is a must-have for classical singers, voice students, teachers of singing, and vocal coaches.

This anthology is a valuable resource for voice students and teachers. The best features of this edition are the IPA and word for word translations of the texts, and historical background on the pieces. Some of the accompaniments are a bit clunky. There are several Italian art song anthologies available. I think it is best to own several different editions, if you are a teacher. I find that I prefer the accompaniments of some songs more in some of the other anthologies, and sometimes a slightly different key helps a particular student. The keys in this edition tend to be lower than in the Schirmer medium low voice edition.
