This book includes an extensive biography of Lee Hoiby drawn from dissertations, published interviews with the composer, and personal correspondence between Mr. Hoiby and the author. The book also includes a comprehensive list of Hoiby’s songs with their dates of composition and revision, information that is almost impossible to find since the composer’s death in 2011.
