New Vocal Repertory

Overview


The first volume of New Vocal Repertory identified a genuine need, among singers and their teachers, for expert help in choosing contemporary repertoire from the often bewildering volume and variety of music available.

Overview


The first volume of New Vocal Repertory identified a genuine need, among singers and their teachers, for expert help in choosing contemporary repertoire from the often bewildering volume and variety of music available. It is now in regular use in teaching institutions and many works featured have found a wider audience. This has prompted Jane Manning to produce a further personal selection of over 60 vocal works, recommended for general repertoire.

As before, pieces are graded according to their demands on vocal techniques and musicianship. Each is given detailed treatment from both performing and teaching viewpoints, with music examples, programming suggestions, and practical information. The stylistic range is even wider--composers from Norway and New Zealand are featured, there is also a strong contingent from Great Britain and North America including early pioneers as well as young talents. Works in foreign languages are now included, as are pieces for solo voice, and voice and tape.

Jane Manning's persuasive advocacy is reinforced by over 30 years' international experience and over 300 world premieres. This invaluable guide will be warmly welcomed by amateurs and professional alike.
