dc.description.abstractThe dissertation is divided into two parts. The first part is an original composition for two sopranos and orchestra using texts extracted from the book of Revelation of the Holy Bible and an original poem by the composer. The work is scored for 2 flutes doubling piccolo and alto flute, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets in Bb doubling Eb clarinet, 1 bassoon, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone, timpani, percussion with miscellaneous battery instruments, vibraphone/glockenspiel, piano, 2 soprano voices, 8 first violins, 6 second violins, 4 violas, 3 cellos, and 2 basses. The second part of the dissertation is an analysis of the work by the composer. The analysis consists of a discussion of text influence on the structure and style of the composition, a description of the form of the work, categorization of musical textures, an explanation of the rhythmic components of the composition, reflection on the use of timbre and instrumentation, an inventory of melodic motives and their recurrence, a breakdown of the intervallic content of fundamental harmonies using set analysis, and a summary of the tonal aspects of the harmony of the composition.
