Most Helpful Customer Reviews

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By cynthia hansell-bakic on May 10, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've read and studied from many books with translations of texts to lieder and song literature, but I can say that the layout of this book is what a singer needs. Phrase by phrase is made understandable and visually it helps to have the original on the left and the translation on the right, it helps me to memorize faster.

The information about the composers who have handled these texts is most interesting and helpful in program planning. My students who are not fluent in German and French have found that they now can handle the subtleties of the songs and song cycles they are preparing.

I am currently a voice student and LOVE this book. Who would want an anthology of song texts in their personal library? If you're looking for a nice gift to give a singer (or yourself) then I recommend this book. I refer to it regularly.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for singers/collaborative pianists who are in the professional field or starting the professional field. The translations are fairly accurate to get you started for traditional songs.
