For the first time in a single volume, this book provides choral directors with a comprehensive guide to score analysis techniques used by the world’s leading choral conductors and innovators.

Together with the companion Volume I: The Choral Rehearsal—Techniques and Procedures(and DVD), this series is an essential guide to productive and musical choral rehearsals written by a leading voice in choral pedagogy. This volume deals with the preparation of both the psychological and spiritual aspects of the choral rehearsal. Areas covered include:

  • Score analysis of Julius Herford
  • Score study through colorization by Margaret Hillis
  • Vocal technique analysis system of Frauke Haasemann
  • Score analysis based upon the note-grouping theories of Marcel Tabiteau as espoused by James Thurmond
  • Analysis and guide to Renaissance metric flexibility
  • Laban Movement Score Analysis
  • Choosing literature for your choir
  • A voice teacher’s advice to choral directors concerning their rehearsal process

Designed for use by all conductors, this text is a valuable and groundbreaking resource for choral conductors at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
