Leigh VanHandel’s study of metrical locations or phrase beginnings and endings in art songs of the 19th century provides a glance into one property of lyric settings unstudied before. Its fastidious data can be trusted, and yet the study’s hard relevance to matters of musical substance, matters of import to a song’s perception, is questionable.
