Let Nature Sing: Solo Songs for the Developing Voice

Carl Fischer Music’s Let Nature Sing: Solo Songs for the Developing Voice. This new release, like the other books in this series, includes a CD containing both piano accompaniment and vocal demo tracks. Let Nature Sing: Solo Songs for the Developing Voice contains ten songs in a variety of styles from spirituals and folk songs to originally composed works, all by well-known female BriLee composers Earlene Rentz, Lynn Shaw Bailey, Laura Farnell, Ruth Elaine Schram, and Vicki Tucker Courtney. Each song is specifically tailored to the treble voice, from narrow ranges of six and seven notes to others that expand the range as the voice continues to develop and mature. These songs challenge the voice without taxing it, and encourage the development of expressiveness rather than over-extension. Includes favorites such as “Oh Shenandoah,” “I Know Where I’m Goin,” and “How Can I Keep From Singing?”
