IPA, Translation, and other Vocal Resources: General Resources

Resources for finding word-for-word, poetic and IPA translations of vocal works, as well as other reference books related to voice studies.

Welcome

Welcome to this guide for exploring the vocal resources that the Albert Alphin and Stan Gezt Library has to offer. The majority of these resources can be found in the Albert Alphin Library, either in the main stacks or in the music reference section (along the fireplace wall near the Quiet Room entrance).

The majority of materials listed here mostly contain translations (word-for-word, poetic or IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) translations) of songs, operas, oratorios and choral works. You will also find additional books concerning guides and biographical information related to songs and opera works.

The resources are largely grouped by language, with general and online resources found on this homepage.
