Choral Music: Norton Historical Anthologyby Ray Robinson (Editor)
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.
