(This is my first post here so please be lenient :) )

Background: I am a pianist and recently, I have become a [classical] singer.

Recall the Henle 'Levels of Difficulty' rankings for piano pieces, found here. I am looking for something similar for (classical) songs.

(Please try to keep discussion away from 'music cannot be ranked,' for yes, I know this fully well. I am just looking for a relatively general guide to repertoire difficulty.)

Thank you!

Welcome! Providing lists and song titles is outside the remit of this site, however, check various exam boards syllabi. World wide. JimM has suggested a U.K. based board - there's also Trinity and LCM here, and undoubtedly each state in U.S. has there own take on this. I know there are several in Oz also. Google is your saviour!
