The purpose of this thesis is to show how the music of “The Masque of Angels” articulates and supports the drama. The various musical techniques which make the complete composition will be examined to show how the composer draws them into one statement and proves himself the dramatist. The effect of the music on the text and that of the text on the musical construction is investigated to gain a clearer concept of the composer’s intent and the opera’s value to the twentieth century listener.
