Abstract:In the 20th century, although choral music was written by various Korean composers, most pieces required instrumental accompaniment, and very few were intended for a cappella chorus. A widely respected composer in Korea, Jung Sun Park is well known for incorporating elements of traditional Korean music into his a cappella works. Although numerous studies of Park’s choral music have been done in the past, many of them are for musicians who already have prior experience or knowledge of traditional Korean music. Very little literature has appeared which can benefit those who lack an understanding of indigenous Korean music. This thesis provides an analysis of Park’s Missa Brevis “Psallentes” from within that framework. Chapter 1 discusses the background of Jung Sun Park, with a focus on his choral works and his compositional styles. Chapter 2 provides guidelines for understanding the elements of traditional Korean Music, including jangdan, jo, and sikimsae, offering essential background for non-Korean musicians who wish to understand Park’s choral works. Chapter 3 consists of a movement-to-movement analysis of Park’s Missa Brevis “Psallentes.” An appendix includes a glossary of traditional Korean musical terms.
