This thesis contains the score of a six-voice choral setting of five original songs. The score is
preceded by program notes and analysis for each movement. In analyzing the accompanying
score, the origins of each tune (including both its composition and past performance settings) are
detailed to show the transition from a short score (or lead sheet), to performances that
incorporate improvised elements, to the present fixed score for a six part vocal ensemble. These
six part settings were composed at the University of Pittsburgh between 2015 and 2017. The
original tunes they are based on were composed between 2008 and 2014.
