Abstract (summary)

Myron Jelleme Roberts (b. 1912) is a composer who has made significant, enduring contributions to the literature of church and concert music for the organ. His published organ works have been performed frequently in concerts and church services throughout the United States and have appeared on several commercial recordings. This study will provide a brief biography of Myron Roberts and detailed analysis of his complete organ works: The analysis of each work will attempt to show how he has used various elements of music (rhythm, harmony, melody, dynamics, texture, etc.) and the instrument itself to develop musical ideas and create structure and meaning. The document will not only present a summary of the works of Roberts at the close of his career, but also discuss the work of a composer who did much of his creative work while serving as a professor at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. The document will also list Roberts' published works for choir and for organ with instruments, but will not attempt to present a definitive study of these subjects.
