Alan Bard Newcomer did not write this, he edited it.
A quick look at the editors name will give you a clue as to why it was originally called "Bardic Voices".
The new title Spell Singers was extracted from this paragraph in the introduction to the book.
"This special breed (of writer) is the storyteller. They manage to work into their writing the special magic that has descended down from the great oral tradition of storytelling. They are the "Spell Singers" of our modern age -- the literal and lineal descendants of the harpers, minstrels, troubadours, and bards."The Spell Singers

But yes, they are good stories, Jennifer Roberson's (at the time this was published) was the first story chronologically in the Tales of the Cheysuli.
Mercedes Lackey's two stories were rolled into later novels, I believe.
Ru Emerson is an interesting look into the life of a retired adventuress, older, living on a farm, out of shape, and suddenly confronted by an old adversary ready to wipe out everything she has gained and loved.
