The Vocal Library

A huge collection of 70 sacred songs for classical singers, spanning an enormous range of literature, including art songs, traditional songs, 28 classic Burleigh spiritual arrangements (experts on African-American spirituals contend they are for singers of all ethnic heritages), and distinctive concert arrangements of hymns and folksongs by Richard Walters. There are four duets included. This collection will be as useful in the voice studio as in every working singer's repertoire and every church music library.
