-------
Monteverdi's "Non havea febo ancora." It's edited by Ken Fulton and
published by Alliance. Great piece!
-------
Vocalise - Chenoweth
-------
I guess Schubert's Standchen (Serenade) is mezzo and men?
-------
Hi How do I Love Thee by James Q. Mulholland is and excellent piece.
You will also need a French Horn.
-------
There's the Vocalise by Wilbur Chenoweth; some Schubert (Die Allmacht, arr.
by Liszt; Staendchen and an Ave Maria arrangement published by Yelton
Rhodes); I've done the Debussy Invocation with sop. instead of tenor;
and I
have an old manuscript arrangement of Summertime that's for men and sop.
solo that I could send if you'd like to have it. Some of these are a
cappella, but not that hard to pull off.
-------
La vergine degli angeli, from Verdi's La Forza del Destino

-------
You must look at Wilber Chenoweths "Vocalise" for TTBB and Soprano solo, w/
piano. Its gorgeous, and fun to sing. Great way to show off a diva
soprano.
-------
Mack Wilberg's arrangement of "The King of Love My
Shepherd Is" has a solo for tenor, but it could easily
be a soprano. It has a relatively easy chorus part too.

-------
If the soprano is a mezzo, how about the Alto Rhapsody of Johannes
Brahms?

>From Broadway, there is a men's quartet with Marian the Librarian in
"76 Trombones"
-------
If you want something fun, how about "The Italian Street Song" from
Naughty Marietta?
-------
Consider Schubert's Standchen, which is intended, I believe, for either
men's or women's voices and solo. The solo is mid-range, not high --
really a mezzo or higher alto range.

-------
Victor Herbert's "Italian Street Song" from Naughty Marietta is a
show-stopper, if your soprano has "killer" coloratura chops. I highly
recommend it! Also, check out some of the men's choruses from
Donizetti's The Daughter of the Regiment. There's a lot to consider
when you start digging into the opera and theater repertoire. Good luck.
