Oxford University Press has published American Encores, a vocal anthology edited by Paul Sperry that presents 17 of his favorite encore songs for solo voice and piano. The wide range of repertoire includes contributions by many of America's finest song composers.

"One of today's great exponents of contemporary vocal music ... Sperry is one of a handful of living singers who caress the English language in a way that gives the words a life of their own."
