Spiral Bound

Editors: Louise Toppin & Scott Piper 

(36 Songs are for Medium to High Voice, 24 Songs are for Medium to Low Voice)

From the Editor's notes:

First, our goal with this anthology was to present repertoire focused specifically on the needs of college students.  That means we looked for repertoire that was unique, stylistically varied, musically challenging, and utilized poetry that covered a wide array of subjects.  Second, although our repertoire does include a few historically significant composers, we chose to offer a balanced perspective from varying generations, genders, and narratives which provides a wide swath of vocal experiences.   Last, as we live in a more global society, we expanded the definition of Black art song to include works from African and African Diaspora composers. (We are using the term African Diaspora to include anyone of African Descent worldwide).  These works allow students to explore multiple languages through songs in French (creole), Portuguese, German, and a song in Pende from the Congo.
