American Sacred Choral Music: An Overview and a Handbook by Samuel Adler

This valuable handbook, the second in a series for choir directors, springs from the Master Schola, a church music conference held on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Master Schola has focused on American sacred music, from the Yankee tunesmiths to our own time -- giving rise to the growing conviction that American sacred music has not enjoyed the exposure it deserves.

This collection of diverse essays paints a broad picture of the history of sacred choral music in America, and provides practical tips for teaching theory, diction, and style. Written by musicians with extensive experience in American music, including members of Gloriae Dei Cantores and their director, Elizabeth Patterson, these essays distill a wealth of research, knowledge, and opinions into a practical resource for anyone approaching this great repertoire.
