This document represents an initial endeavor in a long-lasting aspiration to pursue the study and collection of Latin American choral literature. This essay compiles the most complete and current catalogue possible of choral works written by nine Venezuelan composers born in the twentieth century and presents it in a simple and accessible format so it can be used by a variety of school teachers, choral conductors, church musicians, college directors, and professional musicians. Each composer entry presents a brief biographical note and a list of works organized in alphabetical order. The annotation for each composition includes information in eighteen categories. It also includes an extensive list of biographical resources. In addition, a list of terms and definitions of folkloric and traditional genres will help the reader understand the diversity of Venezuelan musical styles and dances; there is some additional information with regard to performance practice.
