For this book, Jerome Hines, a veteran bass from the Metropolitan Opera in New York, sat down with forty of his most illustrious colleagues, one by one, for intimate conversations on the art of singing. Some were reluctant at first ("You can't learn to sing from a book," grumbled the baritone Cornell MacNeil). Many disagreed violently with the opinions and techniques of their respected fellow artists. But under Jerome Hines' gentle, affectionate probing, they all struggled to put into words what they have learned over the years about that most mysterious and glorious of musical instruments, the human voice. 356pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½")
