Brandon, does your embossing program allow you to choose specific pages? If so, you don’t need to emboss the entire file, even though you need to download all of it. With most of the “web braille” music books from NLS, you will find the table of contents on the first few pages. You can then download the specific pages that contain the song of your choice. If the table of contents lists the ink-print numbers rather than the braille numbers, you may need to do some judicious guessing; the inclusive page numbers on the title page will help you with this process. Thanks to the thoughtful MENVI member who told us the exact pages for “Arm, Arm Ye Brave.”
For standard works such as the “24 Italian Songs and Arias” or anthologies of Handel repertoire, you probably are wise to emboss the entire file, since you will return to many of these pieces, in studying and performing and possibly teaching, throughout your entire career. Handel’s works are of course wonderful medicine for the voice at any age. Happy singing!

I want Arm Arm Ye Brave by Handel and I found it in this book:
I’m wondering if there is any way to just download one song so I can print it out? I don’t have a braille display and I have no idea how many pages this book is. Besides my neighbors might hate me after embossing a whole book, but I’m totally happy to suffer their enmity if this is what people recommend.
BTW for some reason there are all these awesome fantabulous low voice books I’m salivating over on NLS that I didn’t see last time I was on here last year. Is it that I learned how to search? XD... IDK but thank you to all you fantacular Braille transcribers for this low voice stuff!
