This written document presents an introduction to the soprano songs by the Austro-American composer Eric Zeisl. Songs chosen comprise published songs (Der Schäfer, Die Fünf Hühnerchen, Vergiss Mein Nicht, Vor Meinem Fenster) as well as unpublished songs (Der Briefmark, Der Tag Erwacht, Immer Leiser Wird Mein Schlummer, Kommst Du Nicht Herein, Reiterliedchen). The thesis begins with a brief biographical outline of the composer and a discussion of his song style and his musical influences. Subsequent chapters include a discussion of the poets used in the chosen songs, as well as an analysis of these songs. Appendices provide translations, IPA transcriptions, a complete song list of Zeisl’s soprano songs with vocal ranges, and a discography.
