Abstract

Charles Ives’ vocal music is not commonly included as standard vocal repertoire for undergraduate and graduate students. The songs chosen for analysis in this paper all have in common a mixture of some degree of modernism alongside traditional elements that give the pieces an accessibility that is rarely found among modernist composers. The five songs: A Christmas Carol, At the River, Serenity, Charlie Rutlage, and General William Booth Enters Into Heaven range in difficulty at multiple levels and will provide the building blocks for how a student should learn and study a piece of music: through style, historical analysis, and performance technique.
