Carl Vine : The Tree of Man : Soprano : Vocal Score : 9780571572250 : 12-0571572251

Carl Vine : The Tree of Man

Lyrical, direct, and exhibiting a masterful understanding of vocal writing, Carl Vine's secular cantata for soprano and strings, The Tree of Man, is a gift to audience and musicians alike. The 11-minute work, written in 2012 for the Australian Chamber Orchestra and soprano Daniele de Niese, is based on a passage from a novel of the same name by the Nobel Prize-winning author Patrick White. Vine knew White personally (having written music for several of his stage plays in the 1980s), and his setting perfectly complements the simplicity and sincerity of the prose. The music moves in an arc from its quietly insistent beginnings and rhapsodic central section to a haunting conclusion, where the brooding opening returns before evaporating into the air . . .

Ferdinand Sieber : 36 Eight-Measure Vocalises for Elementary Teaching : Solo : Vocal Warm Up Exercises : 029156085426  : 00-K09182

Ferdinand Sieber : 36 Eight-Measure Vocalises for Elementary Teaching

The Sieber Vocalises: It is important to know why Sieber is so good for the voice. He was a Viennese, Italian-trained voice teacher who knew the importance of vowel alteration and its role in keeping the balance of the registers. The Sieber Vocalises are designed to balance the registers using 8 measure melodies based on the Italian syllables da, me, ni, po, to, la, be. The register balance is achieved in the ingenious way Sieber arranges the syllables. Again, his goal it to allow the space of the open vowels in the closed vowels, and the ring of the closed vowels in the open vowels. Lindquest called these vocalises the 'bridge between vocalizing and singing music'. In my 25 years of teaching, I have never found a singer that the Sieber Vocalises did not help tremendously. 36 Eight-Measure Vocalises for Elementary Teaching for soprano voices

Giovanni Lamperti : 30 Preparatory Vocalises : Solo : Vocal Warm Up Exercises : 029156067330  : 00-K09163

Giovanni Lamperti : 30 Preparatory Vocalises

Giovanni Battista Lamperti was a highly-regarded Italian singing teacher who was considered to one of the best of his era. Many of Giovanni's students became international opera stars. These vocalises are designed to prepare the soprano voice for performance. "I recommend the daily use of these Exercises, particularly to Soprano and Mezzo-soprano singing a melodramatic repertory; because exercises of this kind promote length of respiration, and delay the deterioration and undue vibration (tremolo) of the voice. Beginners should confine themselves to a regularly limited range, so as not to weaken the medium of the voice and should extend their compass according to individual progress and development." - G.B. Lamperti

Gwyneth Walker : Musical Settings of the Poems of Emily Dickinson : Solo : Songbook : 600313483172 : 8317

Gwyneth Walker : Musical Settings of the Poems of Emily Dickinson

The poetry of Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) is especially appealing due to the wide range of topics, diversity of mood and peculiar imagination of the poet. The writings are reflective, passionate, witty, sensuous, observant and ridiculously humorous. Her heart soars. Her mind pokes fun! Emily was truly a New Englander. Her poems are understated and compact. Her love of Nature focuses on small things- birds, bees, meadows and a pond.

In creating the musical settings, the composer (herself a New Englander) endeavored to capture the spirit of the poetry, and of the poet, with songs diverse in style, and concise in form. Everything from romance to frogs is explored, briefly.

Great delight is taken in creating musical translations of the colorful imagery: the letters floating off on the breeze ("My Letter to the World"); the shimmering moonlight ("The Moon and the Sea"); a frog croaking in a bog ("The Frog in the Bog"); hopeful birds hopping about ("Hope" with Feathers"); the boat of passion riding the waves and then settling into its mooring ("Passion"); the ship's cannon firing in celebration ("Joy"); and the tiniest, lightest gifts of Nature ("All I Have to Bring").

These are the poet's Letters to the World. She lived as a recluse, yet her words took flight-traveling the universe as messengers of the soul.

Joan Frey Boytim : The Second Book of Soprano Solos Part II

More great classical material for progressing vocal students, from the leading American expert in teaching the young voice. The series started with The First Book of Solos, and then, at the same difficulty level, came The First Book of Solos - Part II.

It shares the same features: a deliberate variety of music in different styles and languages, including a few sacred selections, with over 30 songs per book. Available as books only, or in packs with two CDs of piano accompaniments recorded by Laura Ward.

Juliana Hall : Songs of Enchantment: Ten Songs for Soprano and Piano on Poems by Walter de la Mare : Solo : Songbook : 600313489884 : 8988

Juliana Hall : Songs of Enchantment: Ten Songs for Soprano and Piano on Poems by Walter de la Mare

A collection of 10 short songs on children's poetry by the great English poet, Walter de la Mare. One of Juliana Hall's earliest compositions, it was written in 1989 during her year as a Guggenheim Fellow. Many of the poems come from de la Mare's wonderful poetry collection "Peacock Pie" (from which the 20 songs of Hall's tenor song collection "Peacock Pie" are also taken). These poems are, by turns, fanciful, charming, humorous, endearing, ghostly, and mysterious, all seen through a child's gentle innocence and a child's awareness of detail and changing emotion and color. Suitable for soprano or mezzo soprano, singers will enjoy the purity of expression and the directness of sentiment offered by de la Mare's richly drawn poetic characters and Hall's magical settings of these poetry classics.

Songlist: Daybreak, Away We GO, Double Dutch, The Spotted Flycatcher, The Ride-by-Nights, Company, Alas, Alack!, Hide and Seek, Silly Sallie, A Song of Enchantment
