IPA Source, new music database

October 6, 2015

IPA Source is the largest collection of literal translations and International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) transcriptions on the web. The goal of IPA Source is to promote the comprehension and accurate pronunciation of foreign language texts in art song and opera in order that the singer may imbue each syllable with the appropriate emotional content. IPA Source offers texts to works for the solo voice in Latin, Italian, German, French, Spanish, and English. Our guiding principle is to offer great depth of literature in each language before adding a new "singing" languages. (Description taken from IPA Source web site)

Use of the database is restricted to Stanford users. Remember that if you are connecting from off campus, you will need to configure your web browser to use Stanford’s authenticated proxy server.

IPA Source has been added to the list of Databases and Indexes on the Music Library’s web page for your convenience.
