This compositional portfolio comprises eight original works presented in musical scores. The works were written between October 2013 and April 2017 during the course of my PhD research. The compositions featured are for a variety of combinations of voices and solo instrument up to full orchestra. Audio recordings of performances are included for all except the final orchestral work. In these compositions, I introduce a new compositional idea, declaiming, which I have been developing and which is explained in this commentary. This idea is used to determine the formal structure of these pieces. Unique approaches to using this compositional idea are described in this commentary, regarding individual works.
