The unfolding of choral history and the development of pedagogical ideas largely depend on a combination of social and musical factors. This is what makes choral research both interesting and challenging. Choral representation of societal change does emerge at different historical periods in the European countries – for example in connection with the French Revolution, in Sweden after World War II with the ‘Swedish choral miracle’, and in the Baltic States around 1989 with the ‘Singing Revolution’. The article places particular emphasis on Germany's and Sweden's long-term development of choral meaning from a comparative perspective. Two scholarly journals dedicated to singing have been studied for this purpose. Both were published during two well-defined historical periods: the German Lied und Chor and the Swedish Vår sång from the 1930s/1940s and from the 1960s/1970s respectively. (Less)
