Phonetic Readings of Songs and Arias

Some brief overview of book

Since 1964, the first edition has served singers, teachers of singing, and students of lyric diction as a guide to the correct pronunciation of songs in foreign languages. Lyrics and phonetic transcriptions are presented together so that a song may be correctly articulated from the first reading. The 413 songs included have been carefully selected from Coffin's The Singer's Repertoire (1960) and are representative of the most frequently performed vocal repertoire, with songs and arias for all voice classifications.

This second edition contains revised German transcriptions with diphthongs altered to be of better acoustical and vocal value in singing. Correlated with Coffin's Overtones of Bel Canto (1980).
