"The Texas Woman-Her Heritage in Song"
This Lecture-Recital program traces the history of Texas through the medium of song in the majority of languages that have been spoken in this region. It begins with a native American love song and then offers settings in the languages of Spain, France, Mexico, Germany, and the United States, the latter including samples of classical composition, negro spirituals, and the cowboy ballads of the Southwest. Visual components include photographic displays of the women of each period.
