G. Schirmer American Aria Anthology by : Richard Walters
This landmark series collects compelling; useful; singer-friendly arias from a distinctly American opera tradition. Each volume includes information about every opera and an aria plot note. A majority of the music in the four volumes has never before been available outside of the opera vocal scores; and some arias in the series have never been in print at all before now. Most arias are appropriate for college-level singers. Composers such as Samuel Barber; William Bolcom; Douglas Moore; Virgil Thomson and Gian Carlo Menotti are well represented.
