The purpose of this thesis is to describe the repertory performed for a graduate voice recital. The graduate voice recital program includes five composers’ biographies (W.A Mozart, Gabriel Fauré, Roger Quilter, R.A Schumann, and J.S. Bach); these composers’ general styles, the background of their works, analyses of eleven works, and my personal understanding of the songs’ performance. These biographies will include how the artists created their works, as well as in-depth analyses of their music. The musical analyses will involve the basic music forms, the meaning of the text, and an examination of the musical descriptors.
