Heart to Heart: Expressive Singing in England, 1780-1830
'[an] informative and fascinating look at vocal practice... [which makes] a valuable contribution to the field of performance practice... All should read this book to dispel modern myths about bel canto.' -Deborah Kauffman, Notes, the Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, 58, no. 1 (Sept 2001): 114-16This book establishes the principles of interpretation that singers active in England during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries - both foreign and English - applied to recitatives, arias, and songs. It is the first single guide to historical performance of one of today's most popular repertoires.
