Australian composer Peter Billam has compiled a fairly comprehensive list of composers who contributed to the body of art song in the 20th century with Contributions to the Lieder Repertoire 1900-1999. The list is cross-referenced by composer, decade, and publisher and is definitely worth spending some time perusing. Of course, the sheer depth of what was written in the 20th century is difficult to nail down on a single web page, but a big hand of thanks to Peter for assembling this list. In case you know of any composers or songs that need to be added to the list, feel free to contact Peter.
