The acquisition of a substantial body of repertory in several languages is an important part of the study of voice.
It is assumed that song repertory studied and listed on the repertory sheet, which will be presented at the time of the jury, is new to the student in that semester, i.e., it has not been performed on previous juries (even in a previous degree or at another institution), it has not been included on prior repertory sheets even if not performed, and has never been sung on a degree recital.
