Judy Clark : Vaccai Vocal Exercises

Review: This book and CD package consists of 12 vocal exercises that help train the voice using various intervals, octaves, syncopation, appoggiatura, mordent, gruppetto and more. Expand your vocal experience as well as your musical vocabulary. The 24-page booklet includes printed sheet music and a training practice log to help the artist/student stay focused. A total of 48 exercises are included on the CD (12 exercises recorded in 4 vocal ranges). All these exercises were used by the late Maestro David Kyle in his vocal training regimen. Maestro Kyle has trained thousands of artists, many who are nationally famous. All of the exercises in this set have been adapted from the original versions to be in a more usable format for this training program, and also in an effort to accommodate various singing levels. The set consists of English words only, not the Italian version. All vocalists can benefit greatly from these exercises, no matter what their experience or training level!

Mathilde Marchesi : Twenty Elementary and Progressive Vocalises - Med. Voice

Review: Mathilde Marchesi was a mezzo-soprano, teacher of singing, and exponent of the bel canto technique. She was an advocate of a naturalistic style of singing: she called for a fairly instinctive method of breathing and was particularly concerned with vocal registration, calling it "the Alpha and Omega of the formation and development of the female voice, the touchstone of all singing methods". These 20 vocalises are perfect for your daily vocal practice and having been used by some of the great singers of the past 100 years.

Ferdinand Sieber : Vocalises - Alto

Review: 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. Thirty-Six Eight-Measure vocalises for Altos, complete with solfege.

Giuseppe Concone : Fifty Lessons - Medium Voice

Review: The sterling value and great usefulness of Concone's lessons have been so long recognized, that their extensive adoption caused the issue of numerous editions in almost every country where the study of the Art of Singing is cultivated. No edition, however, is as thorough and complete as his 'Fifty Lessons' series. The purpose of these lessons, in the author's own words, are 'to place and fix the voice accurately,' and 'to develop taste while singing broad, elegant and rhythmical melodies.' This is a vocal training series not to be missed!

B. Lutgen : Vocalises Vol. 1 for Medium Voices

Review: The aim of these Vocalises is to render the voice sufficiently flexible and mellow to execute easily and elegantly the coloratura and embellishments found in the works of our great composers. Proceeding from the principle, that it is unpractical to practice a variety of difficult passages at the same time, I begin with two, three, and four tones, then advancing progressively to more difficult exercises; leaving it to the teacher to transpose them a semitone higher or lower. However, in order to avoid the monotony and lassitude which are almost inseparable from a strictly methodic in a musical and agreeable form; and have made them very short, to prevent overexertion of the voice. Following its avowed purpose, this work contains no exercises for sustained tones; and it will suffice to sing daily a few long-sustained tones, before taking up these exercises. The results obtained with this method, and its approbation by several of the highest musical authorities, justify my hope, that it will find a favorable reception.

The preface contains a series of important theoretical and practical suggestions which have in all cases proved to be an admirable basis of instruction in singing, and are recognized as such by the most eminent authorities, like Lamperti, Garcia, Panseron, and Sieber, to whose opinions the author had also occasionally referred to for vocal instruction.

Giovanni Lamperti : Twenty Nine Preparatory Vocalises

Review: 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 Alto 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

Joan Frey Boytim : The Second Book of Mezzo-Soprano / Alto Solos Part II

Review: 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. The Second Book of Solos, originally released in 1993, is for singers who have taken voice a little longer and are capable of more challenges, but is still decidedly student-level material, and music that can be sung by good high school students. The new The Second Book of Solos - Part II set is at exactly the same level as The Second Book of Solos. 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.

Songlist: Affanni del pensier, Ah, Love but a Day!, All mein Gedanken, Allerseelen, As thou wilt, Father, Au jardin de mon p?re, Avril , Before my window, Chanson triste, Cherry Valley, Die Mainacht, Du meines Herzens Kr?nelein, Du Ring an meinem Finger, Et exultavit spiritus meus from MAGNIFICAT, Immer leiser wird mein Schlummer, L'Heure exquise, La speranza ? giunta from OTHO, Lord to thee, each night and day from THEODORA, Lord, lead me in thy righteousness, Lungi da te, Mon jardin, Nebbie, Qui sedes from GLORIA, Se tu della mia morte, Serenity, Song of Devotion, Song of the Open, Tears, The Awakening, The Twenty-third Psalm, and more

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.

Songlist: Qui sedes ad dextram Patris from Mass in B minor (Bach), Agnus Dei from Mass in B minor (Bach), Von den Stricken meiner Sünden from St. John Passion (Bach), Es ist vollbracht from St. John Passion (Bach), Buss und Reu from St. Matthew Passion (Bach), Erbarme dich, mein Gott from St. Matthew Passion (Bach), Können Tränen meiner Wangen from St. Matthew Passion (Bach), Bereite dich, Zion from Christmas Oratorio (Bach), Schlafe, mein Liebster from Christmas Oratorio (Bach), Schliesse, mein Herze from Christmas Oratorio (Bach), Inflammatus et accensus from Stabat Mater (Dvorák), Virgam virtutis tuae rom Dixit Dominus (Handel), Father of Heav'n! from Judas Maccabæus (Handel), O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion from Messiah (Handel), He was despised from Messiah (Handel), But who may abide from Messiah (Handel), Thou art gone up on high from Messiah (Handel), Fac me vere tecum flere from Stabat Mater (Haydn), Woe unto them who forsake Him from Elijah (Mendelssohn), O rest in the Lord from Elijah (Mendelssohn), Laudamus te from Mass in C minor (Mozart), Quæe moerebat et dolebat from Stabat Mater (Pergolesi), Eija, mater, fons amoris from Stabat Mater (Pergolesi), Fac ut portem from Stabat Mater (Pergolesi), Vouchsafe, O Lord from Te Deum Laudamus (Handel), Agnus Dei from Messe Solennelle (Rossini), Fac ut portem from Stabat Mater (Rossini), Liber scriptus from Messa di Requiem (Verdi), Qui sedes ad dextram Patris from Gloria (Vivaldi), Esurientes implevit from Magnificat (Vivaldi)

Giuseppe Concone : Fifteen Vocalises, Op. 12 (Finishing Studies)

Review: The sterling value and great usefulness of Concone's lessons have been so long recognized, that their extensive adoption caused the issue of numerous editions in almost every country where the study of the Art of Singing is cultivated. No edition, however, is as thorough and complete as his 'Fifty Lessons' series. The purpose of these lessons, in the author's own words, are 'to place and fix the voice accurately,' and 'to develop taste while singing broad, elegant and rhythmical melodies.' This is a vocal training series not to be missed!
