Detailed Instrumentation: 
This collection of songs is the 1st in the series "Art Songs by Contemporary Texas Composers."  This collection was created in response to requests from many teachers for new repertoire which suits the abilities of the young singer.  In addition to writing or selecting suitable texts, the composers created these songs within a modest vocal range, including tonal melodies, and traditional forms, so that the students' musical and vocal abilities would not be burdened while concentrating on correct vocal technique.  All of the songs in this series have been placed on the Texas University Interscholastic League prescribed music list.  It is the editors' desire to provide this collection for all persons having an interest in the American Art Song.
