This session will feature papers about single individuals who wrote both the words and the music for their compositions. The list of potential subjects is vast, from Euripides to Hildegard of Bingen to Richard Wagner to Cole Porter to John Lennon, with many more possibilities from both before and after the listed names. The papers can address compositional process, training in both fields, comparative strengths and weaknesses in words and music, etc.

Send proposals of 250 words to Jeff Dailey (DrJSDailey@aol.com) by March 15, 2010.
