Voice Teacher's Guide to Women Composers
Hildegard is proud to be the leading publisher of vocal music by women composers. Voice teachers today find that it's important to include repertoire by women composers among the study works and recital pieces that they assign for their students. To make these materials easier to locate and review, we have created this resource page specifically for voice teachers and their students. Listed below is a sampling of Hildegard Publishing's vocal collections. Tables of contents and sample pages are included for each collection.
Art Songs and Spirituals by African-American Women Composers
This is a must-have collection of spirituals and composed works by a variety of African-American composers. No voice teacher should be without this essential resource.
First Solos: Songs by Women Composers
The repertoire for these volumes is designed for the young singer. With many vocal collections today containing few songs by women, this is an essential addition for the voice teacher to help build a good and varied vocal repertoire for the young student, male or female.
Nineteenth Century Art Song Collections
These seven volumes of nineteenth century art songs encompass a large and comprehensive collection of repertoire from American and European sources. An excellent teaching resource.

In addition, to the anthologies listed above, we reccommend the following single composer collections for study and exploration of the vocal repertoire.
