maggie katzen: lazy soprano?

I occasionally joke about how I'm going to start drinking and smoking and become a mezzo-soprano. anyhoo, I ordered this from amazon today. I think my teacher didn't feel like butchering Dove Sono again today, so we read through some Vaccai exercises and were really impressed with how those sounded and kinda not like most sopranos would in that part of their voices. (although the book says for Sops and Tenors the things generally don't go above the staff) so, um, we're going to do some exploring and it's a bit freaking me out. mostly cause I just haven't paid attention to mezzo music. OTOH, it explains a lot of recent frustrations.
