    Very good piece of vocal music! The possibility of listening a good recording of it provides the opportunity not only to appreciate the work, but also to understand the style of singing in relation to the musical writing, i.e., the rhythmic subtleties linked to this kind of music. Good...

    work, girls! At last, Sheetmusicplus, a long awaited and practical move.
