Abstract: Margaret Vardell Sandresky is a North Carolina composer, performer, and teacher who is known for her organ, and instrumental compositions, and she has also been commissioned over the last seventy years to compose choral and vocal works. Most of these compositions have not been published, and the manuscripts are kept in her private archives with a large amount being preserved at the Moravian Music Foundation in Winston Salem, North Carolina. The purpose of this document is to create a complete thematic catalog to codify her unpublished and published choral and solo vocal compositions, so they are easily accessible for future performances. This thematic catalog will provide detailed information that contains a composer biography, descriptions of the necessary vocal and instrumental forces, melodic and vocal range incipits, textual origins, a first line index for textual reference, and an index highlighting the necessary vocal forces needed for performance.
