'flicking through the lovingly enthusiastic writing in this Companion is a rewarding experience. Johnson has excelled on every level and his experience as an accompanist transforms this book into a precious insider's account. What could easily have turned out to be a dry catalogue is in fact a lively, witty and informative journey.' -Francis Carlin, The Singer'A great deal of thought has obviously gone into the presentation of the enormous number of facts to be found here... Furthermore, the book is a delight to handle.' -GramaphoneThe French Song Companion is an indispensable guide to French song. 150 composers and 700 song translations make this the ideal handbook both for the seasoned enthusiast, and the newcomer to this endlessly fascinating repertory. Graham Johnson, one of the world's busiest accompanists, brings his wide experience to the biographical commentaries, and Richard Stokes, renowned for his translations of German Lieder, provides line-by-line translations of some of the greatest poems ever set to music.

The first historical overview of vocal performance practice and style ever published, Singing In Style provides an introduction to how such issues as ornamentation, vibrato, rubato, portamento, articulation, tempo, language, and accompaniment with period instruments have been handled since the seventeenth century. Each chapter presents a historical period and gives background information on the singers and composers, the vocal repertoire, and the stylistic conventions of that time. Specific repertoire examples are discussed as well, to show how to use the music itself as a context for making stylistic choices. Each chapter also has an extensive reference list arranged by topic, so the interested reader can pursue a particular subject in more depth. Covering the Baroque period to the present, Elliott casts a wide net, bringing together information from historical treatises, personal accounts from composers, performers, historians, critics, and current scholarly commentary into one convenient handbook for the student and the amateur and professional performer who want to learn more about how vocal works were sung in their day.
