Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Choral Music of the Dominican Republic: Its Impact in the Last 80 Years
by Disla, Edwin Samuel, M.M., California State University, Los Angeles, 2020, 113; 28088727
Abstract (Summary)

This project report will explore choral music in the Dominican Republic, from original compositions to choral arrangements of popular and folk songs. The accompanying recital will sample music written from 1940 to 2019.

In addition to providing historical background on some of the genres of Dominican music used in the recital, textual (including English translation and International Phonetic Alphabet transcription) analysis for each piece will be done. All the works are in Spanish, except for one that is in Latin. Composer biography, performance practice, and conducting considerations for each work will be provided as well.

There will be a link provided for any inquiries regarding Dominican choral compositions for those interested in pursuing access to some of the works found during the process.
