“At last we have four good volumes of real singing songs from mostly pre-1970 music theater productions suitable for classically trained singers…The editor’s excellent Preface addresses the need for classical singers to be at home with music theater, gives notes on the compilation itself, on common pitfalls for classical singers choosing a song, on the necessity for nonoperatic, standard American diction, and on the benefits that singing music that demands direct emotional and character expression might have on the singer’s operatic expression. His advice is clear and well founded…These four volumes should be standard items in all voice studios and private song collections.”–Journal of Singing
