Abstract

In Gesang der Jünglinge (1956), Karlheinz Stockhausen presents a mass for electronic music. My research focuses on the presences and functions of Christian choral traditions in this pioneering piece of electroacoustic music. My analysis focuses on the history and creation of these abstract sounds, and on the trajectory of Christian choral and liturgical traditions, in order to illustrate how Stockhausen’s devotion to Catholicism resonates in this revolutionary piece. To complement this analysis, I have composed music for voice and electronics in the style of Gesang Der Jünglinge.
