Now in its second edition, Choral Repertoire is the definitive and comprehensive one-volume presentation of the canon of the Western choral tradition. Designed for conductors and directors, students and teachers of choral music, amateur and professional singers, scholars, and interested vocal enthusiasts alike, it is an account of the complete choral output of the most significant composers of this genre throughout recorded history. Organized by era (Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern), Choral Repertoire covers general characteristics of each historical era; trends and styles unique to various countries; biographical sketches of over 500 composers; and performance annotations of more than 5,000 individual works. This book has been an essential guide to programming, a reference tool for program notes and other research, and, most importantly, a key resource for conductors, instructors, scholars, and students of choral music. This new edition features dozens of additional composers, updated biographical data, and broadly expanded scholarship that brings new life to this essential text.
