ANNOTATED CURRICULUM GUIDE--A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF PUBLISHED SOLO SONG CYCLES.
BUCKLEY, WENDELL D.
A COMPREHENSIVE HISTORY AND AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF SOLO SONG CYCLES (PUBLISHED FROM 1800 TO 1965 WITH TEXTS IN GERMAN, FRENCH, ITALIAN, AND ENGLISH) WERE COMPILED. FOR THIS RESEARCH THE SONG CYCLE WAS ASSUMED TO BE A COMPOSITE OF SONGS WITH TEXTS OF RELATED THOUGHT AND CHARACTER, DESIGNED BY A COMPOSER TO FORM A SINGLE ARTISTIC MUSICAL UNIT. THE CYCLIC FORM WAS THUS DISTINGUISHED FROM THE MISCELLANEOUS SET OR COLLECTION OF SONGS. THE BASIC EFFORT INVOLVED SEARCHING FOR AND IDENTIFYING THE GROUPS OF SONGS CONSIDERED TO BE CYCLES, AND ANNOTATING SPECIFIC MUSICAL CHARACTERISTICS TO EXTEND CURRENT SOLO VOCAL REPERTORIES. THE HISTORICAL SURVEY INVOLVED AN EXAMINATION OF ABOUT 3,000 CYCLES, FROM WHICH 428 WERE SELECTED FOR THE ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY. AN ADDITIONAL 442 WERE ENTERED IN A SEPARATE CHECKLIST. VARIOUS TECHNIQUES FOR MUSICAL LINKING WERE USED, BUT GENERALLY MOST OF THE ANNOTATED CYCLES CONSISTED OF SEVERAL INDEPENDENTLY RELATED SONGS WHICH WERE DESIGNED TO BE SUNG CONSECUTIVELY. A TOTAL OF 2,614 INDIVIDUAL SONGS WERE LISTED IN THE ANNOTATIONS FOR THE 428 CYCLES. (JH)
