The Boosey Voice Coach is an entirely new concept in vocal training. Not a self-teaching manual, and not filled with off-putting diagrams, this series is a wholly practical guide to singing: learning about technique and interpretation through the repertoire itself. Each volume is devoted to singing in one particular language or to singing in a specific context. Singing in French shows you the specifics of that language: where should there be a liaison between one word and the next? What mouth shape is needed to produce a tricky vowel sound? What about nasal vowels? Or all those silent consonants? These issues and more are covered in this book which contains songs in French from folksong to Fauré, and from the Baroque to the 21st century.
