Title: Three songs for unaccompanied choir
Author: Woodward, Mark E., 1982-
Date: 2009
Publisher: University of Missouri--Columbia
Abstract: Using Maurice Ravel's Trois Chansons as a point of departure, this composition explores the possibilities of motivic, harmonic, and rhythmic development from a shared opening phrase. As a result of this free exploration, the piece losses its association with Trois Chansons as it develops. This works utilizes various compositional techniques from 16th-century counterpoint to 20th-century serial transformations. The poetry was written by young Missouri musicians and explores expressly secular topics and perspectives as a reaction to the large body of sacred choral music.
