Abstract:This dissertation is a thorough study of Cantatrix Sopranica with a detailed analysis of each movement, and a broad profile of her compositional techniques up to this point. Cantatrix consists of eight movements, each demonstrating different texts, vocal styles, and musical references. Chapter 1 introduces the project background, research objectives, significance of the project, and Unsuk Chin's biographical sketch. Chapter 2 concerns general approaches to Cantatrix Sopranica, including elements such as text, vocal considerations, pitch structure, and form, with emphasis on the relationships between the movements. Chapter 3 offers an analysis of each movement in depth, while Chapter 4 is a brief conclusion.
