Abstract

The Solo Songs of Richard Faith: A General Survey of Style presents the roles of both the voice and piano in the art songs of American composer, Richard Faith. Included is a short biography of the composer. His keen sensitivity to the imagery, thoughts, and emotions of the poetry are discussed in selected songs. Within these songs, the romantic lyricism of the voice and the lush harmonies of the piano depict the underlying thoughts, moods, and emotions of the poem.
