|Summary (provisional):||Choral music has been historically excluded from musicological scholarship, particularly in the field of analysis. This research seeks to identify trends among contemporary American choral composers such as Eric Whitacre, Morten Lauridsen, and Libby Larsen, and develop an analytical framework for examining formal processes in their works.|
