English Songs: Renaissance to Baroque
Compiled and edited by Steven Stolen and Richard Walters, this collection has been specifically compiled to be extraordinarily useful to student singers. 17 composers are represented with historical information and 34 songs. This collection is a good alternative or companion to the standard Baroque Italian songs and arias.
Now with recorded accompaniments by pianist Laura Ward. The audio is accessed online using the unique code inside each book and can be streamed or downloaded.
