Abstract:
The Colorado composer, Robert Kreutz, was born in 1922. Since the early 1950's, he has composed music for all genres. This study, concerned with his choral output, examines a body of literature that spans about forty-five years, highlighting compositional elements that are found within the concert repertoire, particularly those works geared to the collegiate or professional choir. While Kreutz's repertoire certainly is a reflection of many twentieth-century practices, a discussion of a separate body of pre-Vatican II Mass settings shows his deep interest in a Neo-Renaissance manner of composition.
