Abstract:This thesis explores the compositional characteristics of choral anthems composed by John Tavener between 1985 and 1990. Twenty-two anthems are examined to identify any common compositional characteristics both in melodic construction and large scale form. Particular attention is given to Tavener's affinity for Byzantine traditions and their influence on his compositional choices. Performance practice issues related to Tavener's works are explored through interviews with Sir John Tavener, Sir Martin Neary, and Patricia Rozario.
