Voicing Communities. Northern European and Continental Choirs in Comparison

Geisler, Ursula LU (2008) Den 15. nordiske musikkforskerkongress 2008 In [Host publication title missing]
Abstract
Even if the Swedish choir movement seemed to have been able to represent different kinds of people’s desires for socio-musical communities for several decades now, this is not a preeminent Swedish attitude. Sweden is not the only country in which choirs might represent an individual’s need for a positively connotated form of culturally constructed collectivism.

Therefore, an interesting starting point for transnational choir research is to look at the utility and ritual impact of choirs. Choirs can shape social realities on the one hand, and choirs are shaped by them, on the other.
