Abstract:
In this document I examine the compositional process in the original choral music of Mack Wilber, (born 1955) in preparation for a performance of representative works. The paper will be limited to only a discussion of Dr. Wilberg's original choral compositions and will not touch upon his arrangements, as these have been dealt with in a previous document. An analysis of selected works will demonstrate how Wilberg uses text, form, meter, rhythm and harmony to create choral works that are wonderfully varied in style and application and that cover a full range of capabilities and tastes. Special attention will be given to commissions and how commissioned works have influenced Wilber's output. This study will point out the stylistic characteristics that make Wilber's music distinctive. The paper begins with a short biographical sketch, and a discussion of Wilberg's professional accomplishments. This is followed by the main body of the paper in which the musical elements listed above are analyzed to determine how Wilberg uses them in order to satisfy the intent of specific commissions. The following works have been selected for study in this document. Jesu the Very Thought is Sweet, The Grateful Concert Round, In Monte Oliveti from "Season Songs", and Jubilate Deo, movement one from "Tres Cantus Laudenti."
