Choral Singing. Histories and Practices

(2014)
Abstract
Choral practice can be seen as a field of simultaneous (re)presentation,

International Conference on the

Concepts and Practices of Choral Singing which was held in Lund, Sweden, in

October 2012. Thematically, these cover relevant choral topics from

the 19th century until today. This is usually regarded as the time scope

during which the secular choral practice of today has developed. However,

some written sources bear witness of choral practices that can be traced

back to the times of antique tragedy. (Less)
