dc.description.abstractThis paper explores examples of two significant categories of the organ repertoire: the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and organ music from the twentieth century. The latter of these categories is represented by music of Arvo Pärt, William Bolcom, and Olivier Messiaen. Each piece is examined from a musical and historical perspective; they are analyzed in terms of their stylistic qualities as well as their rhetorical or functional intents. The three twentieth-century composers are presented with an emphasis on their highly individualistic musical languages. Conclusions are drawn from secondary scholarly commentary resources and thorough research of the primary sources, which are the musical scores. Similar types of pieces across eras are compared and contrasted. This paper represents the research portion of a senior recital capstone project. Each piece discussed in this paper is performed live by the author and recorded to accompany the research. The paper is designed to inform the listener about these pieces and composers and to enrich the listening experience.en_US
