Various Composers : 15 Easy Folksong Arrangements - High Voice

Review: This collection is designed for those students, of any age beyond early teens, in the early stages of voice study, although the arrangements are so satisfying that more advanced singers will also enjoy them. The ranges are modest, and songs have been chosen for both genders. The new arrangements are lovely, fresh and interesting, but keep the simple vocal line in the forefront. The piano accompaniments were deliberately designed for an intermediate level player. The CD includes beautiful performances of each song by professional singers to be used as a learning tool, and a piano accompaniment track for practice. Joan Boytim, the leading American expert on teaching the young voice, has added a preface about how to use these songs in the studio.

Songlist: The Ash Grove (arr. Stanley), Barbara Allen (arr. Stanley), Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes (arr. Dean), Greensleeves (arr. Stanley), How Can I Keep From Singing (arr. Ruck), I Gave My Love a Cherry (The Riddle Song) (arr. Dean), I Know Where I'm Goin' (arr. Walters), Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier (arr. Walters), Loch Lomond (arr. Dean), Scarborough Fair (arr. Ruck), Shenandoah (arr. Walters), Soldier, Soldier Will You Marry Me (arr. Dean), Streets Of Laredo (The Cowboy's Lament) (arr. Walters), Water is Wide, The (arr. Ruck), When Johnny Comes Marching Home (arr. Walters)
