This research document provides a brief biography on Joseph Canteloube and the major events in his life which carved the path of his musical career. A performance analysis is given for all thirty songs that constitute the five volumes of the Chants dâ€™Auvergne. Each of the songs will be introduced by its text: first the original Auvergnat dialect, then in a transliteration using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), and finally in an English translation. There is also an analysis of the text and the implications of its meaning for the melody and the accompaniment as well as for the singerâ€™s interpretation and performance. In addition, this discussion will also include interpretive suggestions based on the authorâ€™s experience, the text, and the musical accompaniment. Each chapter also provides, where appropriate, musical examples to illustrate the information presented.
