A survey of the choral compositions and arrangements of Robert Page

Brian Geoffrey Hart, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

This document represents the first study of the choral compositions and arrangements of internationally recognized American choral artist Robert Page. An octogenarian at the time of this writing, Robert Page is known not only as a composer/arranger of choral music, but also as one of the nation’s leading conductors of choruses, orchestras, operas and musical theater productions. Robert Page is one of the last living links to some of the twentieth century’s greatest musical minds, having collaborated closely with Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Barber, Dimitri Shostakovich, Eugene Ormandy, and such living legends as Kryzysztof Penderecki, Lorin Maazel, Charles Dutoit, Mariss Jansons, and Ned Rorem. ^ At present, many of Page’s compositions and arrangements are available from Hinshaw Publications and Boosey & Hawkes. In addition to examining these works, this document will also provide a catalogue for all known unpublished works of Robert Page. The aim of this survey is threefold: (1) To provide biographical information on one of the modern era’s most celebrated American choral artists, (2) To examine each of Page’s compositions and select representative arrangements from the modern conductor’s vantage point, and (3) To begin the process of cataloguing Robert Page’s compositions and arrangements.^
