The CDs that come with this book do NOT cut it for learning the music. Many of the songs you will have to have learned a capalla first, in order to be able to sing with the piano tracks. These are ACCOMPANIMENT tracks, NOT KARAOKE tracks. This makes the CDs not good learning materials, but good PERFORMING materials. If you don't have an accompanist, you can use the tracks, as the sound quality is very good and they are very accurate to the piece. The accompanist on the tracks sometimes plays the vocal part, if there's a silent piano part, but don't worry...it fits in well, and doesn't sound like it was tacked in there just to make it easier.
Many of these songs are meant to be belted, so get these if you are a true mezzo-soprano/belter. My tessitura is higher than this, and most of these songs sit awkwardly between my head voice and chest voice, so they are a little awkward in my voice type (lyric soprano). That said, however, I find the mezzo anthologies have much more variety in them as far as styles go, so yes, there are some songs in here that I can, and do, sing. The soprano musical theater anothologies I find just have a whole lot of light, lyrical head voice singing, which is fine, but you'll find a wider range of songs in the mezzo books.
