Choral Music. Under one cover we are offered a survey of music for the choral medium from the fourteenth century to the present. This is not a compendium of tired old favorites. It is, rather, a guide to the development of the choral idiom in all its evolutionary complexity. The editor has realized several objectives in selecting pieces for inclusion: to document stylistic development from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century; to illustrate the major categories of choral composition in different periods; and to provide a convenient library of works by major composers in the choral genre in a convenient format.

Historical Dictionary Of Choral Music. The human voice an incredibly beautiful and expressive instrument, and when multiple voices are unified in tone and purpose a powerful statement is realized. No wonder people have always wanted to sing in a communal context-a desire apparently stemming from a deeply rooted human instinct. Consequently, choral performance has often been related historically to human rituals and ceremonies, especially rites of a religious nature. This Historical Dictionary of Choral Music examines choral music and practice in the Western world from the Medieval era to the 21st century, focusing mostly on familiar figures like Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and Britten. But its scope is considerably broader, and it includes all sorts of music-religious, secular, and popular-from sources throughout the world. It contains a chronology, an introduction, a bibliography, and more than 1,000 cross-referenced dictionary entries on important composers, genres, conductors, institutions, styles, and technical terms of choral music.
