Author's Abstract: The book includes a comprehensive list of Hoiby's songs with their dates of composition and revision, information that is almost impossible to find since the composer's death in 2011. Influences on Hoiby's method of composition are discussed as well as his approach to setting text. The analysis of style is conducted in broad terms, pointing out characteristics commonly found in Hoiby's songs and citing examples. Eighteen of Hoiby's songs for high voice have been annotated, with information that should prove of interest to a musician looking for significant new music. In addition to basic information such as range, tessitura, tempi, duration, and key, the annotations provide an overview of the text for the songs and a description of the setting with performance suggestions. Descriptions also include comments on the technical challenges of the vocal and piano parts.
