Albert Neiswanger Hall, later Alberta N. Burton, was the composer who created musical settings for 26 L. Frank Baum poems in The Songs of Father Goose (1900), a follow-up to Baum's first great success, Father Goose (1899).

The royalties from the book were split equally among Hall, Baum, and W. W. Denslow (the songbook used Denslow's original illustrations from Father Goose).

Hall also wrote "Seven Songs for Out-of-Doors for Children Big and Little" (1915). She married a Dr. Edmund F. Burton of Los Angeles. She and her husband were Christian Scientists; she wrote for the Christian Science Journal, and also authored stories for children.
