The selections in the recital given by the candidate can be divided into four sections. The first four songs can claim as their origin in time the early Italian school of the Baroque period. The two selections following these represent the oratorio. The aria by Haydn properly comes from the Class-ical era. The aria from Mendelssohn's oratorio is from the Romantic period, but it is referred to as Classicist-Romanticist, due to different elements of style and technique used by the composer.1 The third part of the recital is composed of art songs, taken from the German Lieder group, the first two by Schubert, the remaining two by Richard Strauss. The songs by Duparc and Lalo represent the French school. The last two songs in the candidate's recital are by contemporary composers, Jean Berger and Cyril Scott.
