Celius Dougherty – 30 Art Songs in Original Keys

for Medium/High Voice and Piano

Series: Vocal Collection Publisher: G. Schirmer, Inc. Composer: Celius Dougherty

American composer Celius Dougherty (1902-1986) is best remembered for his art songs. Gracious and witty, they show a love of words, with texts ranging from the most elite English and American poets to a dictionary entry (“Love in the Dictionary”). With a deep understanding of the voice and the piano, Dougherty created a body of song literature that lives on in a steady flow of student and professional performances. This edition includes several songs that were previously unpublished. Singers will love “Review,” a hilariously detailed critic's account of a voice recital.
