Not illustrated. 1920 Excerpt: ...long holds on these tones. After singing the scale this way Lamperti's pupil is advised to sing it with comparative rapidity, lightly and cleanly. At the termination of the scale the student should sing an arpeggio of the four tones of the chord descending. This will hold him to the intervals of the chord. In practising the scale of an octave descending the student should begin with the lower tonic and take the interval of an octave upward and then sing down the scale to the lower tonic again. Lablache, Manuel Garcia, Panseron, Winter, Martini, Garaude, Manstein Fetis and others recommend a systematic progress from vocalises on two notes up to the octave. Garcia says: "Those who wish to sing scales or other passages without having begun on two, three or four notes risk failing to execute roulades." He holds that it is easier to sing a passage of two notes than one of three, and one of three than one of four, and that, therefore, the correct progress begins with two. The exercise which he" gives for two notes is simple. The student is required to sing, say, C and D below the clef in alternation, the first time in quarter notes, four to the measure, then in eighth notes and finally in sixteenth notes. "Vocalises" is a convenient term used by singing teachers for vocal exercises. It is derived from the Italian lingers' technical word " vocalizzi." The exercise for three notes consists of the progression C, D, E, D, in quarter notes, then in eighth notes and then in sixteenth notes. Any teacher following out this idea can construct a series of progressive exercises for his pupils. These exercises are recommended by Lemaire and Lavoix as "an excellent gymnastic by which the voice will be rendered supple and agile." Th...
