People and Genres

In earlier parts of this book, we have often focused on what different composers and songwriters have done with the same text, setting them side by side to compare and contrast. There is also a benefit to focusing on particular individuals and their creative work, looking at what we know of their motivations and interests as well as what texts they chose to set and what they did with them. Often those individuals specialized in or have become famous for particular types of musical settings of biblical material, hence our inclusion of chapters on particular genres in this part of the book, which primarily focuses on individual composers.
