Songbooks for Bass and Low Voices

A bass (or basso in Italian) is a singer who sings in the deepest vocal range of the human voice. According to Grove Music Online, a bass has a range extending from around the F below low C to the E above middle C (i.e., F2 E4). The Harvard Dictionary of Music defines the range as being from the E below low C to middle C (i.e. E2 C4). According to Singing for Dummies, bass range is normally F2 to E4 but can be as wide as Eb2 to F4. According to its author, Pamelia S. Phillips, the bass changes from chest voice into middle voice around A3 or Ab3 below middle C and changes into head voice around D4 or C#4 above Middle C. Phillips states that the bass's low voice is his strength, and the bass's high voice is his weakness. Phillips also states that the bass's voice is the deepest, darkest, and heaviest of the male voices.[3]. It is also common for men who are classified as "basses" (and have a full bass choral range) to have a speaking voice which may sound much higher than would be expected. Most seasoned basses also can train a very versatile falsetto, making their usefulness in a choral arrangement even greater.

Cesare Siepi : Voices of the Opera Series

Review: Italian bass Cesare Siepi (born 1923) is one of the legendary opera singers of the 20th century generally considered to be one of the finest basses of the post-war period. He was a star for decades on the world's great opera stages, including the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala (Milan) and Covent Garden (London). His Met career was extraordinary, with 450 performances spanning 24 consecutive seasons. In 1962, the charismatic Siepi stretched his talents to perform a lead role on Broadway in Bravo Giovanni!, a musical conceived just for him. His professional career was remarkably long, from his debut at age 18 in 1941 until his retirement from the opera stage in the early 1990s. This edition presents 12 signature arias, with Siepi's distinctive interpretations notated in the score and discussed in essays and explanatory notes. A biography of the singer is included.

Songlist: Deh, vieni alla finestra, Ecco il mondo , Ella giammai m'am?, Fin ch'han dal vino, Infelice! e tu credevi, La calunnia ? un venticello , Le veau d'or, O tu, Palermo, terra adorata, Son lo spirito che nega, Vecchia zimarra, senti, Vi ravviso, o luoghi ameni, Vieni, o Levita!... Tu sul labbro de' veggenti

Walter Michalak : Sing We Now of Christmas - Bass

Review: Imagine how much more productive and efficient your rehearsals will be when you or all of your choir members have had time to rehearse on their own with a CD targeted to their specific vocal part. When you all get together there will be more time to devote to nuances and performance skills, instead of the basic learning of notes Rehearsal CD has the featured vocal of your choice: Soprano, Alto, Tenor or Bass on the right side (or right speaker/headphone), and the rest of the chorus voices in the left speaker/headphone. That's right, you aren't alone, the rest of the chorus is there with you but your vocal part is highlighted and isolated for your convenience! The large-type, easy-to-read music book that accompanies each rehearsal CD, gives added reinforcement. For each carol you will hear the name of the carol, a set of tones, with the loudest tone being your starting tone, and a metronome click to start off the tempo and count you down to the beginning. The count will always be a full 2 measures before the start of the carol, and if the carol starts in mid-measure there will be 2 full measures plus the partial measure before the carol begins. It's as easy as that! If you listen on headphones and don't have a balance control, you can simply move the left or right headphone to isolate the left/right playback sound.

Songlist: Angels We Have Heard On High, Away In A Manger, Coventry Carol, Deck the Halls, The First Nowell, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Good King Wenceslas, Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, It Came Upon A Midnight Clear, Joy to the World!, O Come, All Ye Faithful, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Silent Night, What Child Is This, We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Richard Walters : G. Schirmer American Aria Anthology

Review: This landmark series, the first multi-volume aria anthology devoted entirely to the topic, collects compelling, useful, singer-friendly excerpts from the best of a distinctly American musical tradition. Plot notes and basic information about each opera are included. Opera composers such as Samuel Barber, William Bolcom, Douglas Moore, Virgil Thomson and Kurt Weill are represented. The operas of Gian Carlo Menotti are particularly present, with 26 arias from nine operas in the series. Additionally, attractive, performable arias are included from important works such as Regina, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Ghosts of Versailles, The Great Gatsby, and Little Women. Stephen Sondheim graciously agreed to make new aria editions of two pieces from Sweeney Todd ("The Contest" in the Tenor volume and "Epiphany" in the Baritone/Bass volume) for this series. A majority of the music in the four volumes has never before been available outside the vocal scores; a significant number of the arias were especially adapted for this edition. Some arias in the series have never been in print at all before now. Many arias are appropriate for college student singers.

Songlist: Good People Of Leadville, Jehosophat! McTeague's Wanted!, O Tixo, Tixo Help Me, Ol' Man River, Soliloquy, Thousands Of Miles, Turn Tail And Run Then, Warm As The Autumn Light

Various : The Oratorio Anthology

Review: This is the most serious and useful collection yet published of solo arias from oratorios, masses and cantatas. The literature was confined to work by major composers, and by-passes the dated oratorio literature found in previous collections. The most famous music is here, and so is interesting and less famous music by masters. There are new music engravings for each aria, and extensive historical notes and translations. Solo instrumental obbligato parts, which can be cut from the book, are included on appropriate selections.

Bach), Quia fecit mihi magna from Magnificat (Bach), Et in Spiritum sanctum from Mass in B minor (Bach), Betrache, meine Seel' from St. John Passion (Bach), Gerne will ich mich bequemen from St. Matthew Passion (Bach), Grosser Herr und starker König from Christmas Oratorio (Bach), O misère des rois! from L'Enfance du Christ (Berlioz), Hostias from Requiem (Faure), Revenge, Timotheus cries from Alexander's Feast (Handel), Behold the monstrous human beast from Belshazzar (Handel), See the raging flames arise from Joshua (Handel), Arm, arm, ye brave! from Judas Maccabeus (Handel), Thus saith the Lord; But who may abide from Messiah (Handel), Thy glorious deeds inspir'd my tongue from Samson (Handel), Schon eilet froh der Akkermann from The Seasons (Haydn), Rollend in schäumenden Wellen from The Creation (Haydn), Lord God of Abraham from Elijah (Mendelssohn), Gott sei mir gnädig from St. Paul (Mendelssohn), Crucifixus from MESSA DI GLORIA (Puccini), Quoniam to solus sanctus from Messe Solennelle (Rossini), Pro peccatis from Stabat Mater (Rossini), Confutatis from Messa di Requiem (Verdi), Komm, süsses Kreuz from St. Matthew Passion (Bach), Mache dich, mein Herze, rein from St. Matthew Passion (Bach), For behold, darkness shall cover the earth; The people that walked in darkness from Messiah (Handel), Why do the nations from Messiah (Handel), HANDEL - The trumpet shall sound from MESSIAH, Honor and arms from Samson (Handel), Erblikke hier, betörter Mensch from The Seasons (Haydn), Nun scheint in vollem Glanze der Himmel from The Creation (Haydn), and more

G. Schirmer Opera Anthology : Diction Coach - Arias for Bass

Review: Diction lessons on each aria in the series recorded by top language coaches from the Metropolitan Opera and the Juilliard School plus International Phonetic Alphabet and word for word translations With these book/CD packages that match the standard aria collections edited by Robert L. Larsen, any singer anywhere has access to the best diction coaching available at a very affordable price. Each aria is recorded twice. In the first version the coach recites the text as an actor would speak it, showing flow of the language and the mood. The second version is a slow, deliberate lesson, allowing time for the student to repeat each line. These experienced language coaches adapt the "R" in German and French in the slow versions for singers. They also are very sensitive to liaisons between word sounds in the musical settings. The book includes International Phonetic Alphabet for each aria and word for word translations. The native speaking professional diction coaches from the Metropolitan Opera and the Juilliard School are: Corradina Caporello for Italian, Pierre Vallet for French, Irene Spiegelman for German, Kathryn LaBouff for English, Yveta Synek Graff for Czech, and Gina Levinson for Russian.
