This series now has a new "Part II" for each voice type, at the same level as the original volumes. This is preparatory material for The First Book of Solos series, with modest ranges and all songs in English, including very easy art songs, folksong arrangements and vintage popular songs. The song selection is completely different for each voice type with 18-20 songs per volume.
