A beloved classic of inspirational comments for serious singers, edited from comments noted during singing lessons with revered teacher Lamperti. In the 19th century, the actual mechanics of breath and larynx were not as well understood as today. So his descriptions of anatomy etc. are not completely accurate. Nevertheless Lamperti appreciates the psychology and intuitive aspects of singing, especially how to concentrate and practice so that mastery of technique does not over-ride one's essential desire to make music. Just a lovely little volume for any vocal library.
