24 Italian Songs and Solos

24 Italian Songs and Solos, Schirmer Ed.

Schirmer’s “24 Italian Songs and Arias” (used along with Vaccai’s Singing Method) has long been the traditional entry for Classical voice students into singing art songs and eventually opera arias.  The moderate range and easy Italian text setting facilitates the developing of the fine support, tone and diction that characterizes the Classically trained voice.  Any song in this book will serve as an impressive performance piece for a recital or an audition for an honor choir or college music program.

Per la gloria d’adorarvi
Amarilli, mia bella
Alma del core
Comme raggio di sol
Sebben, crudele
Vittoria, mio core
Non posso disperar
Danza, danza, fanciulla gentile
Vergin, tutto amor
Caro mio ben
O del mio dolce ardor
Che fiero costume
Pur dicesti, o bocca bella
Il mio bel foco
Lasciatemi morire!
Se tu m’ami, se sospiri
Nina
Gia il sole dal gange
La violette
O cessate di piagarmi
De florindo e fedele
Pieta, signore
Tu lo sai


Per la gloria d’adorarvi
