(Vocal Collection). With a graceful gift for lyrical vocal writing, English composer Roger Quilter (1877-1953) created a rich body of art songs. Very few composers working in English have matched his achievement of a living body of beloved, relevant, literate repertoire. The strong melodies and natural phrasing make his compositions perfect literature for the progressing singer. There has never before this publication been a significant collection of Quilter. This new edition conveniently and economically collects 55 songs, all in clear, new music engravings and in two keys (with original keys noted). Many of the songs have never been published in transposition before this edition. This collection features a biography of the composer and notes on the songs. 224 pages, sewn binding.

Gorgeous Edwardian songs, good for teaching and for recital as well.
A valuable collection of Quilter songs but many wrong notes and texts.
While Quilter isn't my favorite composer, he certainly is relevant to aspiring vocal performers. A must-have in your music library.
