Abstract: The noted Argentine composer, Alberto Ginastera is remembered primarily for operas, Don Rodrigo, Bomarzo, and Beatrix Cenci. Stuart Pope, editor of Ginastera's works and personal friend, has written in the preface of his catalogue: "As with his (Ginastera's) contemporary Benjamin Britten, the human voice is perhaps Alberto Ginastera's greatest influence: the operas, the cantatas, the chamber music with voice and not least the choral writing." Ginastera composed three choral works and, notably, all three appear in the sacred genre. These three sacred choral works were written at the beginning of his ouevre, Psalm 150 (Op. 5, 1938), the middle years, Hieremiae Prophetae Lamentationes (Op. 14, 1946), and Turbae ad Passionem Gregroianam, (Op. 43, 1974). From a musical and historical view, this study will show not only his choral compositional techniques but also yield in-sights into the development of Ginastera as a composer in general.
