Joan Frey Boytim
Joan Boytim has selected some of the easiest songs in English from The First Book of Solos series and transposed them for a different voice type for many of the selections in Introduction to Art Song, making the songs available to more students. Additionally, other suitable songs, not found in other Boytim collections, have been included. Each voice type has a unique song list. These books may be used by students in traditional voice lessons or by voice classes. Contents for the soprano volume include: AMERICAN LULLABY (Gladys Rich) • BENEATH A WEEPING WILLOW'S SHADE (Francis Hopkinson, arr. Harold Milligan) • THE BLUE-BELL (Edward MacDowell) • CLOUD-SHADOWS (James H. Rogers) • COME BACK! (Roger Quilter) • CORALS (Bryceson Treharne) • DANNY BOY (Old Irish Air) • DREAM VALLEY (Roger Quilter) • GO 'WAY FROM MY WINDOW (John Jacob Niles) • THE LASS FROM THE LOW COUNTREE (John Jacob Niles) • LONGING (Samuel Barber) • MUSIC, WHEN SOFT VOICES DIE (Samuel Barber) • MY LOVER IS A FISHERMAN (Lily Strickland) • RIBBON BOW (John Jacob Niles) • THE SKY ABOVE THE ROOF (Ralph Vaughan Williams) • SLUMBER SONG (Alexander Gretchaninoff) • THE STATUE AT CZARSKOE-SELO (César Cui) • THIS LITTLE ROSE (William Roy) • THY LOVE (Samuel Barber) • YOUNG LOVE LIES SLEEPING (Arthur Somervell)
“During the past 25 years, I have used the majority of Boytim's anthologies. I find these most recent publications to be the most useful of all. A student could use their voice type's volume for many years, eventually singing every song in it. They will be a staple in my studio in the future.”–American Music Teacher
