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, making the songs available to more students. Additionally, other suitable American and British art songs have been included. With 15-20 songs per volume, each voice type has a unique song list. Perfect for voice class, as well as private lessons. Contents for the tenor volume include: ACROSS THE WESTERN OCEAN (Irish Sea Chantey, arr. Celius Dougherty) • BY THE SEA (Roger Quilter) • COLORADO TRAIL (American Folksong, arr. Celius Dougherty) • GIVE A MAN A HORSE HE CAN RIDE (Geoffrey O'Hara) • MOBILE BAY (African-American Chantey, arr. Celius Dougherty) • O MISTRESS MINE (Roger Quilter) • THE PRETTY CREATURE (Stephen Storace, arr. H. Lane Wilson) • ROLLING DOWN TO RIO (Edward German) • THE ROVIN' GAMBLER (John Jacob Niles) • THE SEA-BIRD (Roger Quilter) • SHENANDOAH (American Sea Chanty, arr. Celius Dougherty) • THE SHIPS OF ARCADY (Michael Head) • SIMPLE SIMON (Herbert Hughes) • THINK NO MORE, LAD, LAUGH, BE JOLLY (Arthur Somervell) • WHEN I HAVE SUNG MY SONGS (Ernest Charles)
“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
