Abstract:Italian composer Francesco Paolo Tosti produced a large number of well-crafted songs in Italian, French and English, many of which (especially the Italian songs) are staple repertoire choices for undergraduate voice majors in study and performance. His English-language parlor songs are less well known. However, many are worthy of consideration and inclusion in the thoughtful selection of repertoire for the technical and artistic development of a singer. First evaluating the historical, musical context of Victorian London within which these songs were composed, published, and marketed, this study provides a pedagogical, textual and musical evaluation of seven of the seventy English songs by Tosti. The goal of this project is to provide a launching platform should these selections be chosen for use by undergraduate voice majors and their teachers for specific vocal and artistic development goals.
