Dedicated to providing information about language diction for singing, the Diction Domain contains a database of links to websites, books, and other resources. This site is primarily intended as a reference for singers and teachers of singing diction, but welcomes all visitors.
An archive and directory of free, printable sheet music for singers and voice teachers, containing mainly standard classical and traditional repertoire. All songs are in the public domain. Art Song Central includes IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) transcriptions for all French, German, Italian and Latin songs contained in this archive.
Each of the over 750 selections comprises the original poem, a concise English translation, and an IPA transcription, accounting for any unusual musical setting and idiomatic phrasings throughout. Enunciation and transcription charts are included for each language on a single, easy to read page, along with innovative and useful guidelines for transcribing Italian, German and French lyrics.
An archive of texts used in classical art songs, choral works, and other types of classical vocal pieces. The collection currently indexes 135,350 vocal settings and includes over 25,000 volunteer translations to English, French, Italian, Dutch, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and other languages.
Besides providing basic information about various arias, the database includes translations and aria texts for those titles in the public domain. Though inactive since 2013, the database contains 389 aria translations.
