Lydia ZervanosGreek art Songs transcribed into IPA

This project aims to enable singers familiar with the International Phonetic Alphabet to correctly sing art songs originally written in Greek. The text of the lyrics of roughly 24 Greek songs will be transcribed into IPA, as well as a word-for-word and poetic translation in English will be provided. This compilation will be accompanied by a brief guide to correct Greek diction and possibly with a recording of the spoken text. Publication and presentation of the final project to vocal conferences are the desired goals.
