Joan Boytim, compiler of The First Book of Solos series, is the most respected name in widely-used publications for the developing singer. She brings her expertise and vast knowledge of literature into the sacred genre with this collection, which presents traditional sacred solos for classical voice and piano. The songs span from the easy to the more challenging, but all are within the realm of a reasonable, “classical” solo for a church service. Some of the songs included have long been out of print. The 43 selections range from classics by Bach and Mozart to early 20th century favorites and rarities.
