Access restricted to the OSU Community"The purpose of this thesis is to examine transcriptions for the wind band derived from varying original media, i.e., orchestral works, opera, keyboard literature and choral compositions, with the ultimate goal of providing qualitative, and where possible quantitative, assessments for answering the simple question "Is this a good transcription?" To that end it is first necessary to ask "How does one define a transcription?" and "What makes a transcription good?""--P. 1
