The book is a collection of ideas, procedures, and devices which have been successfully used with choral groups of all ages. The chapters are organized to cover one problem area at a time, and succinctly state the suggested solutions. This digest of the fundamentals of the choral art is designed to be of help to all choral directors regardless of their experience and ability, or the skill of their groups. The veteran conductor may use it as a check list for his own work--the less experienced conductor will find the material of great value both in building a fine chorus as well as in developing an increased awareness and sensitivity on his own part. The handbook may well serve as a text for choral conducting classes as well as a source book of information for members of school, community, and church groups.
