Songbooks for Alto Voices

An alto or contralto is a singer with a vocal range somewhere between a tenor and a mezzo-soprano. The term is used to refer to the lowest female singing voice, or to a kind of male singing voice utilizing falsetto called a countertenor. Alto pieces normally span between G below middle C to the E a tenth above middle C (i.e. G3-E5). At the bottom of their range, male altos sound almost like tenors. Some altos have even larger ranges; from the C below middle C to the C two octaves above (C3-C6 if middle C is C4), but like all singers, their vocal type is defined mostly by their vocal center and not by their range (a soprano for instance could technically possess the lower range of an alto, but would not be comfortable singing it). In four part choral harmony, the alto is the second highest voice.

Ferdinand Sieber : 36 Eight-Measure Vocalises for Elementary Teaching : Solo : Vocal Warm Up Exercises : 029156116397  : 00-K09184

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 alto voices.

Giovanni Lamperti : Twenty Nine 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 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

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".

Susan Anders : The No Scales, Just Songs Vocal Workout Vol. 2 - Alto / Bass

This follow-up to Volume One of Susan Anders' Vocal Workout includes 18 fully-produced pop, rock and jazz songs and instructional tracks, and is the same level of difficulty (so using Volume One is not a prerequisite).

Various : The Oratorio Anthology : Solo : Songbook : 073999470598 : 0793525063 : 00747059

Various : The Oratorio Anthology

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)

Walter Michalak : Sing We Now of Christmas - Alto : Solo : 01 Songbook & Parts CD

Walter Michalak : Sing We Now of Christmas - Alto

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
