** Stanton’s Staff Selection - 2007 **

Written, researched, and compiled by scholars with a wealth of teaching and conducting experience, Teaching Music through Performance in Choir, Volume 1, is an indispensable resource that enables conductors and educators to move toward full musical awareness. This is an ideal tool for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the preeminent music composed for choir from some of the seminal voices in the profession. In Part I of the book, noted choral directors and educators cover such topics as breath control, stylistic awareness from polyphony through the Classical period, the challenges of modern music, "Performance Practice in the African American Slave Song," and meeting the National Standards. Part II establishes a new system for grading the difficulty of choral repertoire and contains nuts-and-bolts analyses of more than 100 of the most significant works for choir composed, Levels 1 through 5. Repertoire Resource Guides include information on the composer and composition, historical background, technical requirements, stylistic considerations, musical elements, suggestions for additional listening, and a guide to selected references. Also included is an in-depth analysis of the choral masterwork Requiem by Gabriel Faure. Teaching Music through Performance in Choir is an essential resource for choir directors at all levels and a major contribution to the choral field.
