Choral Performance: A Guide to Historical Practice
"Choral Performance: A Guide to Historical Practice presents a detailed discussion of various aspects of historical performance practice, especially as they relate to liturgical polyphony of the Renaissance. Plank considers such issues as timbre, tempo, and rhythm; the makeup of the ensemble, articulation, ornamentation, pitch, and tuning; and interpretive goals - issues in which premodern choral technique and modern practice have often distinctively diverged. Musicological and performance perspectives address these issues in a manner that is both documentary and practical." "This study will interest musicians who specialize in early music, as well as conductors and singers who come to early music from the mainstream and perform it in that context. Mainstream choral conductors faced with the need to develop expression in multiple styles across a broad repertory will also find Choral Performance a congenial ally."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
