The book examines the contributions of John Alden Carpenter, Arthur Shepherd, and Jean Cras to the dissemination of Rabindranath Tagore's Gitanjali (Song Offerings) through the medium of art song, in settings designated for the soprano voice. Almost a century has lapsed since Tagore's text was popular and these songs first became famous. This book takes a new look at them to stimulate interest in vocal music with South Asian influences.
