The primary focus of this document is to provide performers and musical scholars

with an analysis of Lee Hoiby’s musical composition I Have A Dream. The

opening of this document will be biographical, including facts regarding family lineage,

education, positions held, general aspects of his personality and significant influence

regarding equal rights. Biographical information will span from Dr. Martin Luther King,

Jr.’s birth (January 15, 1929) to the March on Washington (August 28, 1963). Next, I will

outline the methodology and techniques Dr. King used in leading the movement. Literary

texts written by King, Jr. and other influential writers will be referenced to discover how

and why he became such a monumental figure in the face of civil rights in America.

I will then focus exclusively on Mr. Hoiby. I will highlight Mr. Hoiby’s

biographical information. Then, I will focus on general compositional techniques used by

Mr. Hoiby in his solo vocal works. Included will be musical examples from I Have A

Dream and other selected works to assist the reader in understanding the music further.

Finally, I will present a textual and musical analysis of I Have A Dream. Conventional

theoretical techniques of musical analysis will be used to decipher the harmonic language

used in the composition. The document will conclude with a bibliography and

appendices. Reference material at the conclusion of the document will include the text of

I Have A Dream. There will also be a list of vocal works composed by Mr. Hoiby, as well

as an e-mail correspondence giving the author permission to use musical examples.
