This is the first complete survey of Sweden's rich choral music during half a century. Equally suited to music libraries and music institutions and as individual studies for choirs with an interest in Scandinavian music, it includes a guide to research, a select discography, a select bibliography, and a list of selected a cappella works relating to the composers interviewed. Dr. Sparks is a Professor of Music at Pacific Lutheran University and is Artistic Director of Choral Arts Northwest, a 24-voice chamber choir founded in 1993.
