Joan Boytim, who compiled the widely-used series The First Book of Solos, is the most respected name in publications for the developing singer. She brings her expertise and vast knowledge of vocal literature into the sacred genre with these collections, which present traditional sacred solos for classical voice and piano. Ranging from classics by Bach and Mozart to early 20th century favorites and rarities, the 43 songs - some long out of print - span from easy to more challenging, but all are the realm of a reasonable, classical solo for a church service.
