NE W EDITION.

THE VOICE AND SINGING

(THE FORMATION AND CULTIVATION OF THE VOICE FOR SINGING),

By ADOLFO FERRARI

WHEN this book first appeared we foretold its success; our conviction being founded on the author's freedom from conventional trammels, the strong good sense of his opinions, the novelty and yet evident soundness of his precepts, and the conciseness and practical value of his examples and exercises, of which every note is dictated by a clear and definite purpose. The influence of Signor Ferrari's method of forming and cultivating the voice, as it is explained in this treatise, is enhanced by the efficacy of his personal lessons in his practice as one of the most eminent teachers of the day ; and this work has consequently come into general use as a manual of vocal instruction, not only in the metropolis but throughout the kingdom.

In this new edition the author has made various important additions to the work, especially to the Exercises. Formerly they were confined to soprano or tenor voices; exercises for the one voice being also available for the other. But, for the contralto, or the barytone, provision was not made. This desideratum is now supplied, partly by means of entirely new exercises, partly by giving the old exercises likewise in transposed keys, and partly by adapting the soprano exercises also to the contralto or baritone, by the insertion of alternative passages in small notes. By these means the utility of the work is very greatly increased.

We have said that the remarkable qualities of this book are the author's freedom from conventional trammels, the strong sense of his opinions, and the novelty yet evident soundness of his precepts ; and this we will show by quoting, unconnectcdly, a few passages which cannot fail to strike every reader.

"Voices are too often ruined by giving pupils 'difficult songs, in order to gratify their vanity or that of their friends, before they have acquired the power of sustaining the voice, throughout its natural extent, with a firm and clear intonation. When it is recollected that it has taken years of application and study to enable professional singers to execute HTOTi£\r\y the enncra we. ftrA Riyuiatnmivl to hflrtr attempted by almost every young lady who is requested to sing in a drawing-room, the absurdity of the prevailing system becomes self-evident.

"I strenuously advise all who wish to sing not to defer the commencement of this study, as is generally the case, till the pupil arrives at the age of 17 or 18, by which time young ladies ought to be good, singers, but to commence early, at about 13 or 14 years of age, and resisting the gratification of singing a number of songs for the amusement of their friends (the word may be taken in more senses than one), to devote sufficient time to what may be termed the drudgery of singing, so as to enable them to acquire the power of sustaining the voice, easily to themselves and agreeably to the air.

"Many young ladies now-a-days speak habitually in a feigned voice. Here lies the greatest difficulty in teaching, or practising singing; for should neither the pupil nor master know the real tone of the voice, the more earnestly they work together the sooner the voice deteriorates. In my experience I have found this difficulty most easily overcome by making the pupil read any sentence in a deep tone, as though in earnest conversation, beginning two or three notes below what they consider their lowest notes; but, as the lower and richer tones of the voice are generally objectionable to young singers, all of whom are ambitious to sing high, it requires much firmness and some coaxing on the part of the master to get the pupil to submit to this exercise. I cannot advise too strongly the greatest attention to the free and natural development of the lower tones of the voice : it is to the stability of the voice what a deep foundation is to the building of a house.

"In conclusion, I must add a few words on a subject of great importance to the pupil who makes singing a study. I mean the spirit in which instruction is received. Every emotion of the mind affects the voice immediately; therefore it is of the utmost importance that the pupil should receive the lesson with the mind entirely preoccupied by other matters, and in a perfect spirit of willing submission to the teacher's corrections, however frequent, and however unimportant they may appear ; for it is simply by the constant correction of little nothing* that beauty of intonation and elegance of singing arc obtained."—Paikj News.
