This post is an attempt to categorize every song within the five Baritone/Bass volumes of The Singer’s Musical Theatre Anthology.  I have chosen to categorize songs using the following musical styles as guidelines: Operetta, Jazz Standard, Golden Age Standard, Post-Golden Age Standard, Contemporary Mixed, Musical Theatre Pop, Musical Theatre Rock, Sondheim, and Disney.  Other criteria like character name, age, and song tempo may be added at a later time.    For a complete songlist with volume numbers included, click here.

P.S. If you need assistance choosing appropriate repertoire for yourself or for your students, please check out my new repertoire consulting business, The Repertoire Guru.
