“These two lovely volumes for high and low voice are the result of growing scholarship around the work of a composer often slighted...We are fortunate indeed to have this latest generous edition, offering as it does a wealth of material for recital and pedagogic purposes. The inclusion of Niles's own notes from the original edition is particularly moving.”--Journal of Singing
