Abstract

The purpose of this survey, The Becoming of a Song Composer: A critical re-valuation of Hageman as a song composer, is to assemble and demonstrate the knowledge and insights that sprang from my research as scholar and performer of Hageman’s songs over an extended period of time. This study aims to expose a number of new songs to be added to the American art song repertoire hitherto undiscovered or neglected. By introducing the 19 songs discussed in the current thesis to scholars and performers of American art song, greater insight will be gained into one of America’s neglected song composers.
