song in any key.
Free choral music, and an increasing number of solo songs are available on The Choral Public Domain Library
which has over 3,200 public domain choral scores for free download
Art Song Central - principally an archive of free, printable songs

General Singing Resources

Singing Voice - general information about the human voice
A Brief History of Singing by John Koopman
The Lied and Song Texts Page - does exactly as it says
L'Atelier du Chanteur (The Singer's Workshop!)
This site is partly in French, but more and more pages are available in English too.
  • physical exercises demonstrated by animated figures,
  • vocal exercises,
  • articles explaining and discussing points of vocal technique,
  • selected outside contributions,
  • an annotated bibliography,
  • a glossary of the vocal terms,
  • Vaccai lessons that you can play and transpose.
Vocalist is a site full of ideas and material for singers.
Titlemax (a American firm which seems to loan people funds against their car) has a good page of links to songs for children to sing in the car (rather unlikely, I know)
