University of Aberdeen
The course is aimed at composers, performers and musicologists with a real interest and passion for choral music. Under the expert guidance of choral-specialists, students will be immersed in the technical, historical and cultural aspects of choral music and will be guided and helped in the finding of their own distinctive voice through the study of the great choral masters, past and present. Students will work closely with a professional choir in residence, learning valuable practical skills in choral-orchestration, conducting and choir training, and hear their compositions or editions performed in concert.
Candidates must normally possess a degree in music at 2.2 Honours level or above, or an equivalent qualification or proven relevant experience in music; applicants must also meet the English language requirements of the university.
Core course: Project; music research skills; music research seminar series. Options: Words and music; vocalstration; voice and the machine; contemporary European opera; sacred music from Italy; Renaissance counterpoint.
Assessment is by means of a project portfolio (either a portfolio of compositions; performance or dissertation or combination of all three, negotiated for both 30 and 60 credits) and the completion of a number of supporting options. The options will be assessed by means composition work, essay, oral presentation, and/or performance.
