Abstract: For my thesis, I wrote a musical work called Eulogy. It is a composition for brass quintet and choir that makes use of contrast, both in regard to the text and the music. Juxtaposing elements are used in order to give character to sections and to also create a hierarchy of moments. Through an examination of how contrasts are used, the way in which the music works can be determined. This paper defines the meaning of musical contrast and the ways in which it applies in Eulogy and then categorizes the different contrasts based on the functionality in the piece. Simultaneous and nonsimultaneous contrasts are found to work differently within the work to either recontexutalize and idea or to change existing musical material.
