Melissa Mills : Working with Young Singersnew

Review: This important resource is the culmination of a lifelong dream of author Melissa M. Mills to share the wisdom of many of the most influential community children's choir directors in North America, especially those responsible for pioneering and shaping this wonderful art form. Across two volumes, Mills collects and organizes interviews with 23 expert conductors. Through their conversations, Mills gleans wisdom about their training, teaching philosophy, motivations, and practice, and provides a special focus from each conductor on topics ranging from assigning vocal parts and teaching healthy tone production to planning rehearsals and developing independent musicians. Teachers of young singers will find a broad and deep exploration of the issues that conductors must consider, leading to more purposeful instruction and increased effectiveness in the choral setting. The philosophies and principles discussed in these books offer insights for teachers of the youngest singers through teenagers, in all choral settings (children's choirs, church choirs, and elementary, middle, and high school choirs). The growing interest in both community children's choirs and choral conducting philosophy makes Working with Young Singers a timely and invaluable resource for all choral music educators.

Salamu Aleikum : Choral Music of the Muslim Worldnew

Review: Muslim choral music? There are numerous examples of group singing in the Muslim world, almost all of which is non-notated. Many of these group singing genres date back several centuries, such as the genre of Arab music called the muwashshahat, a song tradition that started in Muslim Spain and has continued vigorously until modern times. While there are numerous examples of Muslim group singing, notated part-singing is a product of colonization, Westernization, Christianization, and now globalization. It is becoming increasingly popular for composers in the Muslim world to arrange and compose music for the Western-style choir, and this collection serves to introduce participants to the breadth of Muslim culture, some Muslim songs, and the great diaspora of music of the Muslim world through a selection of pieces from different social, and cultural contexts.

Songlist: Ai'Yu, Fog Elna Khel, Adinu, Yal Asmar Ellon, Entarisi Ala Benziyor, Lammaa Badaa Yatathannaa

Leo Nestor : Four Part Songs From The Highlandsnew

Review: "These settings were commissioned by my alma mater California State University, Hayward, a place of happy memory and abiding affection and ties. How privileged I was to hear the premiere performance of the Chamber Singers and Dr. Roberta Brokaw, flute, conducted by Dr. David Stein on 15 March 1998. Three of the settings are of pre-existing tunes; O, My Luve Is Like a Red, Red Rose is originally composed. Similarly, two texts are from the tradition, and two sing the poetry of Robert Burns." Singers and conductors of these works are encouraged to render the texts of these love songs with an ear to an authentic Scots accent.

Deke Sharon : The Heart of Vocal Harmonynew

Review: Most choirs spend their rehearsal time focusing on notes, rhythms, and precision. They rarely, if ever, discuss a song's meaning and feeling, even though those elements are precisely what draws people to the music in the first place. Thousands of books have been written about choral technique, teaching people how to sing technically well. What sets The Heart of Vocal Harmony apart is its focus on honest unified expression and the process of delivering an emotionally compelling performance. It delves into an underdeveloped vocal topic - the heart of the music and the process involved with expressing it. The Heart of Vocal Harmony is not just for a cappella groups - it is also for vocal harmony groups, ensembles, and choirs at all levels, with or without instruments. In addition to the process, the book features discussions with some of the biggest luminaries in vocal harmony: composers, arrangers, directors, singers, and groups - including Eric Whitacre, Pentatonix, the Manhattan Transfer, and more!

Songlist: Concepts, Preperations, Emotions, Choices, Meanings, Perspectives, Techniques, Considerations, Motivations, Insights

Alan Alder and Thalia Mulvihill : The Show Choir Handbooknew

Review: With the popularity of television shows such as Glee, American Idol, and The Voice, show choirs have become a vibrant component of college and high school music programs. Music teachers must not only know how to teach choral singing for popular music, but also be versed in show design and production. In The Show Choir Handbook, Alan L. Alder and Thalia M. Mulvihill address both song technique and show presentation, giving show choir directors the full set of tools they need for successful performances. The Show Choir Handbook is a resource for current and future music educators who administer show choirs. With most literature on the topic either out of date or focused on the teaching techniques limited to vocal jazz (drawing on the choral genre's origins as "swing choirs"), instructors are in dire need of a resource that addresses music produced by publishers and choral arrangers.

Jennifer Miceli : Skill Building Sequence for Choral Ensemblesnew

Review: The ability to bring meaning to music notation without the assistance of an accompanist playing choral parts is a requisite skill on a musician's journey to self-reliance and full artistic expression. Despite its importance, high performance expectations pose a challenge for choir directors to allocate discrete rehearsal time to music reading skill development. Consider for a moment an embedded music reading system that facilitates choristers' ability to read their choral octavos; a process that develops rhythm and tonal musicianship and gives choristers the tools they need to learn music on their own. This book introduces an adaptable, literature-based choral music reading approach that empowers young singers with music literacy skills that point beyond the choral rehearsal and encourage independent and group music making for a lifetime.

Trineice Robinson-Martis : So You Want to Sing Gospelnew

Review: There are few works in existence that teach gospel singing and even fewer that focus on what gospel soloists need to know. In So You Want to Sing Gospel, Trineice Robinson-Martin offers the first book of its kind on this critical gap in vocal literature. Robinson-Martin gathers together key information on gospel music history, vocal pedagogy, musical style and performance, and its place in music ministry. So You Want To Sing Gospel covers such vital matters as historical, cultural and spiritual perspectives on the gospel music tradition, training one's voice, understanding the dynamic of sound production, grasping gospel style, and bringing together vocal performance with ministerial imperatives. She also includes in her discussion such matters as voice type, repertoire selection, and gospel sub-genres.

Review: Traditional choirs, folk ensembles or any other group of singers will enjoy this collection of songs from the Republic of Georgia selected, notated and recorded by Clayton Parr and Carl Linich.

Traditionally, these songs are in three polyphonic voice parts, and the authors have provided many pedagogical tools for learning: recordings, pronunciation guides, lyric sheets, song backgrounds and recordings. Includes 18 songs, CD includes song demos, part-Learning tracks available online.

Various Composers : Music from Les Choristes (The Chorus)new

Review: The highly successful French movie Les Choristes (The Chorus) was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and "Vois sur ton chemin (See Upon Your Path)' was nominated for Best Original Song with the musical theme reoccurs throughout the movie and expresses the central image of the story: Joys of childhood, too quickly forgotten erased. A golden light shines steadily at the very end of the path. "Caresse sur l'ocean" is an enchanting melody with wonderful interwoven harmony, this expressive song paints an evocative image of a bird aloft on the wind, traveling far distances, from snowy far-off lands to castles in Spain. "Cerf-volant " is a buoyant song that beautifully depicts the image of a kite flying high in the air implying a child's imaginative wishes and dreams. "Lueur d'ete" dramatically portray the emotions, dreams and fears of the children in the story. Images of summer, like our childhood memories, remain always in our heart. Includes the original French and English lyrics.

Songlist: In Memoriam, Vois sur ton chemin (See Upon Your Path), Caresse sur l'ocean (Caress Upon the Ocean), Cerf-volant (Kite Flying), Lueur d'ete (Summer's Warm Light), Compere Guilleri
