This thesis explores the work and lives of composers who set Hardy's verse to music during his lifetime and seeks to identify the place of Hardy song settings in English musical history and in the personal history of their composers. It also gives evidence that Hardy possessed an extraordinary musical memory, and that, to an extent that has not been appreciated, he consciously wrote various poems for musical settings.
