The Language of Song provides a wealth of classic song repertoire, carefully selected and presented to develop the vital skills required to sing in a foreign language. An invaluable resource for all singing students and teachers, each song gives both a literal and poetic translation of the text, with a detailed pronunciation guide using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), and background information.

The CD provides the text for each song spoken by a native speaker - an expert language consultant who specializes in coaching singers - and includes accompaniment by international pianist John Lenehan. The elementary collection focuses on songs in Italian and German, with some French. The intermediate collection focuses on songs in Italian, German, and French with some Spanish.
