Abstract (Summary)

Judith Bingham (1952- ) is the most acclaimed female British composer of our time. Her work encompasses most genres; however, a quarter of her compositions are choral. In spite of her fame in Britain, outside of that country she is not well known. This paper is a study of five of Judith Bingham's choral works analyzed in depth. These pieces cover the main types of her choral compositions: Water Lilies (1999), The Drowned Lovers (2000, revised in 2009), Missa Brevis "The Road to Emmaeus" (2003), Ghost Towns of the American West (2006), and First Light (2001).
