Review

This series is a rich source of songs for teachers and students ... the CDs add to overall usefulness of the volumes, especially with native speakers of the various languages of the international traditional songs. (Journal of Singing)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great selection and the CD is really useful 1 Dec 2011
By Al
This is a great selection of songs, suitable for use in the ABRSM Grade 5 singing exam. The CD is really useful, with 2 tracks for each song - spoken lyrics and piano accompaniment.
My only negative would be that some of the tempi are a little 'brisk' but they are so beautifully played that I listen to many of them as pieces in their own right!
These books are a really useful tool for students to practise to and also for teachers, especially if a song is new to you or if you need pronunciation help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 27 Mar 2013
Bought for Grade 5 at the recommendation of my daughters Music Teacher, excellent book, great song choices and the cd means she can concentrate in singing and not have to play the piano as well. Love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very versatile book 30 Nov 2010
My singing teacher advised me to buy this as it encompasses several different styles. If you're talking Associated Board exams, the songs in this book are grade 4/5 level. There is a good mixture of songs in here, including a few in different languages. The book comes with two CDs providing both piano accompaniment and pronunciation guides (by native speakers) for all songs.

However- the CDs do not include a demonstration of somebody actually singing the song and there is also no separate pull-out sheet with just the vocals on it. This means that if you have someone accompanying you on the piano, you will either have to get another copy of the book or you will have to try and read over their shoulder (not easy if you don't know the song very well).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent books 11 Oct 2011
By EBG
These ABRSM books are excellent - several and contrasting pieces from each exam list and a wide variety of unaccompanied options too. This plus lots of different languages to ring in the changes and the CDs (one of piano accompaniment and the other for language pronunciation) make this range of books (and particularly 4 and 5) unbeatable. Highly recommended.
