Abstract
Though primarily known as a lyricist and librettist, Gene Scheer is beginning to emerge as an important composer of American art and popular song. This document presents Scheer’s song cycle for baritone, entitled Voices from World War II (Holding Each Other, The German U-Boat, At Howard Hawks’ House, Omaha Beach, and Morrison Shelter). The document includes biographical information about the composer and arranger, an overview of the song cycle, and a performer’s guide to each song. A conclusion of Voices from World War II follows the analysis of the songs. Appendices include the texts from Voices from World War II, a discography, a list of published songs and choral pieces, a list of operas and oratorio for which Scheer has written the libretti, a transcription of the phone interview with the composer, and a letter of permission.
