This series of 5 volumes is an introduction to art song in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Each volume has a different song list, and includes 30 selections in appropriate keys. Beyond art song, each collection includes two carefully chosen opera arias, an oratorio aria, and an operetta aria by Gilbert and Sullivan.
Audio tracks missing
This is a great digitzation of this anthology, but the accompaniment tracks are missing for the first half of the songs, only starting with Schumann’s Die beiden Grenadiere…. This should be fixed as soon as possible.
