The Boosey Voice Coach is an entirely new concept in learning about technique and interpretation through the repertoire itself, with 20 songs in English by Purcell, Handel, Haydn, Warlock, Finzi, Britten, Copland and Rorem. Each piece is discussed at length, starting with the words, moving to meaning and interpretation, and then addressing the technical difficulties the music presents. Expressed in clear language, Mary King's approach is direct, practical and not limited to one particular teaching method. Any student will find that these books enrich and complement their vocal studies.
