This volume offers a sampling of great vocal music that has been long forgotten. Out of print for a century or more, these songs by Rossini, Donizetti and others come from the private collection of the editor, Patricia Adkins Chiti. This edition includes carefully edited text and music, word-by-word translations of the Italian texts and transcriptions into the International Phonetic Alphabet. Accompaniments are also available on both cassette and compact disc.
