A Summary
Appendix A - "Tell Me" (arr. D. Joyce)
Appendix B - Charts from Basic Harmony and Theory Applied to Improvisation

Jimmy Joyce's A Cappella Choir was featured on the Alfred Burt Christmas Carols CD, considered by some to be the finest recording of carols ever. This intermediate level instructional manual covers a variety of topics, including voice leading, intros and outros, scoring and rehearsal techniques, and has an accompanying CD featuring 50 examples. Also included is an appendix of Dick Groves' Harmony and Theory Charts, which detail which scale is appropriate for each chord in a harmonic progression. This book presupposes a fundamental grasp of notation and harmonic structure and is an excellent way to progress in sophistication after the basics are learned.
