Duane Richard Karna : The Use of the International Phonetic Alphabet in the Choral Rehearsal : Book : 978-0-8108-8169-3

Duane Richard Karna : The Use of the International Phonetic Alphabet in the Choral Rehearsal

"The fusion of text with music is one of the most powerful methods by which a composer can express emotion to an audience, yet, all too often, the diction of choral groups is lacking to such a degree as to make the text unintelligible." So argues Duane R. Karna, who in The Use of the International Phonetic Alphabet in the Choral Rehearsal brings together 30 essays by experts from around the world to describe how the character symbols of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) can be used by singers in the choral rehearsal. In an effort to conquer one of the greatest challenges facing choral directors and their choirs, contributors explore the use of the IPA system in a vast range of languages. Readers will find essays devoted to the use of IPA on matters of lyric diction for the following tongues: Baltic Languages, Basque, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Dutch, Ecclesiastical Latin, English, Finnish, French, Georgian, German, Germanic Latin, Greek, Hawaiian, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, and Swedish. Holding firmly to the belief that basic instruction in IPA character is part of a choir's training, Karna and his contributors see enormous potential for choirs to expand considerably their foreign-language repertoire and save considerable rehearsal time. The Use of the International Phonetic Alphabet in the Choral Rehearsal is the ideal primer for choral directors and choirmasters as well as choir members.

Various Arrangers : One Rehearsal Wonders

Every choir needs a cache of anthems that are easy to learn for those "slim" Sundays. One Rehearsal Wonders will be an essential for directors who are looking for quality SAB, two-part, and simple SATB anthems. From contemporary chorals for worship, to expressive songs of devotion and praise, this compilation of eight anthems plus bonus benediction is ideal for smaller adult and youth choirs. One Rehearsal Wonders will meet many needs for easily learned anthems, and will prove to be a valuable budgetstretcher as well.

Songlist: I Will Rejoice, He Will Carry You Through, One Step He Leads, Praise God, Delight Yourself in the Lord, Awaken Me to Pray, O Give Thanks, At the Cross, Go In Love
