Abstract

The topic of this study is the sacred art song of the past three decades (1958-1988). One-hundred forty-eight songs have been selected for the Compendium which, in the writer's opinion, are suitable in both quality and appropriateness for the Protestant worship service. The listing does not include solo literature which would be classified as "gospel" or "Christian Contemporary," nor does it include selections which may be more fitting for recital use. Each entry gives the title, composer, author of text, publisher, date, range, tessitura, occasion, and type of accompaniment. In the annotation which follows, notable musical and textual features are discussed.
