A study that systematically maps and classifies the major German lieder according to the themes of their text. The author traces in detail the extent to which each theme has evolved from German folk-song, or derives from elsewhere, notably the Romantic period. This analysis also affords insights into the differing personalities of the major lieder composers. It constitutes a comprehensive reference-work, an encyclopedia of lieder themes.
