Bassini's The Art of Singing

Even though exactly 150 years have passed since The Art of Singing was first published, Bassini’s method is just as valid today as it was when it was written. The book is not just an historically interesting document, it defines a method of bel canto. It contains the vocal wisdom of the 18th and 19th centuries. The principles illuminated here were those used to train the great singers who were the first to sing the operas of Donizetti, Bellini, Rossini, and many others.
