SONG LIST

CLASSICAL SOLO SOPRANO

Song List
This is a small selection of my most popular songs. I have more in my repertoire, please contact me for more details.

Ave Maria

Gounod/Bach, Schubert, Caccini

2 of the most popular classical arias for funerals. Caccini is a beautiful aria but lesser known, than Gounod.

Somewhere over the rainbow

Harold Irlen

Written for the film ‘Wizard of Oz’ in 1939, where it was famously performed by Judy Garland. There have been many different versions performed since, but the original is the best. A classic show tune, with great sentimental meaning.

Amazing Grace

John Newton

John Newton, the author of the lyrics to this famous song began his career in slave trading. The turning point in his life was a violent storm one night at sea. Moments after he left the deck, the crewman who had taken his place was swept overboard. Although he manned the vessel for the rest of the tempest, he realized his helplessness and concluded that only the grace of God could save him. This was the inspiration behind the words of this song that was written many years later.

Danny Boy

Frederic Weatherly

“Danny Boy” is a ballad set to an ancient Irish melody. English lawyer and lyricist Frederic Weatherly wrote the words to ‘Danny Boy’ in Bath, Somerset in 1910. Various suggestions exist as to the true meaning of ‘Danny Boy’. Some have interpreted the song to be a message from a parent to a son going off to a war or an uprising. This is suggested by the reference to ‘pipes calling glen to glen’, or alternatively leaving, as part of the Irish diaspora. A lovely folk song.

Lascia ch'io Pianga (Almirena's Lament)

Handel

From Handel’s Opera ‘Rinaldo’. An heroic Italian Opera this story is about battle and love, set in the time of the first crusade. Almirena’s well-known aria is very beautiful and full of deep emotion. She laments her fate. ‘May the pain mercifully shatter the chains of my torment’. This aria is simultaneously a prayer and an answer to it, intertwined and indistinguishable from each other. A beautiful piece of music.

You'll never walk alone

Rogers and Hammerstein

From the Rogers and Hammerstein musical ‘Carousel’.

Donna Taggart
