Maybell Glenn & Alfred Spouse - Theodore Presser Co
,
This is the premier collection designed specifically for the developing singer. Year after year these volumes contain numerous pieces that are on state lists all over the country. In addition, these books can be used in beginning college voice classes. The fundamentals of breathing, tone and pronunciation are well presented here. All of the songs are in English with foreign texts listed as well. This collection was first published in 1928, but like all great music, this collection will not go out of style.
