The Singing in French anthologies of songs offer singers with little experience of the French language the support needed to engage with and perform in the language with confidence.

Volume 1 has eighteen songs chosen from the site's scores for their accessibility to young singers are beautifully presented in a single volume with all the language support and commentary needed to help singers create an accomplished performance. Volume 2 builds on the repertoire with twenty-two slightly more challenging songs. Many of the songs are to be found on exam syllabuses, yet all the songs are worthy of a professional recital programme, so the anthologies are also a great place for an advanced singer or a singing teacher with little experience of the French language to start too. For ease of use on a piano music stand the collection is presented in a saddle stitched (stapled) volume.

The collections are competitively priced at £12 (vol.1) and £13.45 (vol.2) plus P&P. As with all the scores from the site, digital accompaniments and readings of the texts for all the songs in the books can be purchased inexpensively from the Shop page. (Vol 2 coming soon).

The anthologies are available with the songs in two keys, suitable for higher or lower voices - and further keys are of course available from the Shop page.
