Summary "Each aria diction lesson is recorded twice. In the first version the coach recites the text as an actor would speak it, showing the flow of the language and the mood. The second version is a slow, deliberate lesson, allowing time for the student to repeat each line. These experienced language coaches adapt the guttural "R" in German and French in the slow versions for singers"--Back cover.
