Now in paper! An invaluable reference text for singers, teachers, and vocal and operatic coaches, this volume contains the complete song texts of the songs for voice and piano by Chausson, Debussy, Duparc, Faure, and Ravel. All these song texts are in an easy-to-read three-line format; Line 1: the original language text; Line 2: a vertically accurate word-by-word translation into English, using the exact word order of the original language; Line 3: a poetic reconstruction of Line 2 into a more poetically understandable English form. This format differs from purely poetic or singing translations by giving the user an exact, accurate knowledge of each word as it is understood by a native language singer. Cloth edition published in 1991. Available in paperback in 2001.
