This comprehensive collection is the best one-volume source available on the topic, with a mix of familiar recital standards and intriguing material awaiting discovery. Includes composers from c. 1900 into the 21st century. Some songs make their first published appearance in American Art Song: Gian Carlo Menotti's moving “The Old Man's Song,” Michael Tilson Thomas' inspired “Grace,” dedicated to Leonard Bernstein, and Aaron Jay Kernis' “A Good Boy,” as well a boogie-woogie art song by the editor, “Blue Monday.” The same songs appear in High Voice and Medium/Low Voice.
