Art Songs of Louise Talma (Hardcover) (Kendra Preston Leonard)
about this item
The Art Songs of Louise Talma represents some of Talma’s finest compositions and those most frequently performed, which have found a place in the repertoires of choirs ranging from amateur ensembles to professional groups. Talma’s works for a single voice and piano have been celebrated by distinguished singers, but a complete collection of her works for voice and piano has never been published. These scores are now part of the Louise Talma Collection at the Library of Congress, now fully catalogued for the first time. The collection includes an analysis of structures and text-setting, as well as additional sources for information on Talma’s vocal works.
