The latest addition to our Music Databases is IPA Source. This being Wisconsin, you might think this resource dispenses beer ratings or advice, but in this case IPA stands for International Phonetic Alphabet. IPA Source is the web’s largest library of International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) transcriptions and literal translations of opera arias and art song texts. Now with over 11,498 titles!

IPA Source was developed to benefit singers, teachers, and all those interested in the correct and knowledgeable performance of vocal literature. Its goal is to promote the comprehension and accurate pronunciation of foreign language texts in art song and opera in order that singers may imbue each syllable with the appropriate emotional content.
