My M.M. thesis demonstrates four historical periods of vocal performance art song literature in recital format. The Italian classical period will be represented by the Mozart concert aria, "L'amerò sarò costante, " from Il Rè Pastore. A set of four Schubert lieder will act as a bridge between the classical and romantic periods. This specific set was selected due to the common theme of nature present in each lied. This set of lieder includes "Die Rose, " "Nachtviolen, " "Der Blumenbrief, " and "Im Haine." A French song cycle by Francis Poulenc entitled "Fiançailles Pour Rire" will demonstrate the impressionistic era. Finally, a twentieth-century song cycle, "Six Elizabethan Songs, " by Dominick Argento will conclude the program.
