  • A massive range of repertoire from the Medieval to modern musicals - many in practical new editions.
  • Irresistible new arrangements by Carol Barratt of eighteen classic songs.
  • A rich collection of sixty authentic unaccompanied traditional songs, sourced from around the world.
  • English singing translations for every non-English-language song - many newly-commissioned.
  • Useful notes on the songs containing background information and performance suggestions.
  • CDs of Piano accompaniment to all the art songs, performed by Simon Lepper, as well as recordings of the text to every song, performed by native speakers.
