Now in its second edition, A Handbook of Diction for Singers is a complete guide to achieving professional levels of diction in Italian, German, and French, the three major languages of the classical vocal repertory. Written for English-speaking singers and offering thorough, consistent explanations, it is an ideal tool for students and an invaluable reference for voice teachers, vocal coaches, and conductors. The book combines traditional approaches proven successful in the teaching of diction with important new material not readily available elsewhere, presenting the sounds of each language in logical order, along with essential information on matters such as diacritical marks, syllabification, word stress, and effective use of the variety of foreign-language dictionaries. Presented in an attractively concise format, the book goes into greater detail than comparable texts, providing specific information to clarify concepts typically difficult for English-speaking singers. Particular emphasis is placed on the characteristics of vowel length, the sequencing of sounds between words, as well as the differences between spoken and sung sounds in all three languages. Featuring significantly expanded coverage of each of the three languages and illustrated with numerous examples, this second edition of A Handbook of Diction for Singers is an exceptional text for courses in diction and a valuable reference source for all vocalists.

This essay is a guide to Swedish lyric diction for American singers. An overview of the linguistic traits and basic grammar of the Swedish language prepares the reader for a detailed description of Swedish phonemes and their occurrence in the language. Differences in pronunciation conventions as they pertain to classical singing, particularly the contrast between högsvensk (high Swedish) and talad svenska (spoken Swedish), are explored. The author offers repertoire suggestions for various voice types and levels of study, with special attention to the Swedish songs of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Finally, translations and transcriptions into the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) of representative song texts are given.

"This book is an instruction/reference manual for young singers, advanced performers, and singing teachers. Several facets of this book are unique and set it aside from other vocal pedagogy books. It is presented in two coordinated parts. Part One contains specific instruction in how to sing. Part Two offers details in how to teach singing: a wealth of information that is applicable throughout a singing life. Part One offers detailed, illustrated descriptions of the vocal mechanism and its function, as well as related exercises and vocalises. It also incorporates diction rules, information related to aspects of the young voice, the aging voice, audition strategies, and more. Part Two includes specific, practical advice on how to train singers to perform effectively, set up a teaching studio, and create lesson plans. Finally, this book provides an internet bibliography that lists pertinent websites. The continued lifelong relevance of the book is a major aspect. It is a book to be referred to over and again"--
