Now in paperback. This innovative survey of large choral-orchestral works written between 1900 and 1972 and containing some English text examines eighty-nine works, from Elgar's Dream of Gerontius to Bernstein's Mass. For each work, the author provides a biography of the composer, complete instrumentation, text sources, editions, availability of performing materials, performance issues, discography, and bibliographies of the composer and the work. Based upon direct score study, each work has been evaluated in terms of potential performance problems, rehearsal issues, and level of difficulty for both choir and orchestra. When present, solo roles are described.

The forty-nine composers represented include Samuel Barber, Arthur Bliss, Benjamin Britten, Henry Cowell, Frederick Delius, R. Nathaniel Dett, Gerald Finzi, Howard Hanson, Roy Harris, Paul Hindemith, Ulysses Kay, Constant Lambert, Peter Mennin, Gunther Schuller, William Schumann, Michael Tippett, Ralph Vaughan Williams, William Walton, and Healey Willan.

Written as a field guide for conductors and anyone else involved in programming concerts for choir and orchestra, this text should prove a useful source of new repertoire ideas and an invaluable aid to rehearsal preparation. Cloth edition first published in 1994.

About the Author:

Jonathan D. Green (B.Mus., Fredonia School of Music; M.Mus., University of Massachusetts; DMA, University of North Carolina at Greensboro) is a Director of Ensembles at Sweet Briar College. He is a frequent guest conductor and clinician, and an award-winning composer. His works have been performed throughout the United States and Europe.

Review:

The objectives of the book are clearly set out, and Dr. Green covers them meticulously....a mine of information for a choral conductor....strongly recommended for library shelves. (The Conductor)

...a practical performing handbook of 90 works written between 1900 and 1972 by 49 composers. (American Reference Books Annual)

Recommended for all libraries serving choral programs. (Rq)

In these two volumes, Jonathan Green performs an admirable service...Green has done an excellent job of organizing and presenting the material he did choose to include...a clear, concise discussion of performance issues...the material presented in both volumes is thorough... (Journal of the Conductors Guild)

This volume will be extremely useful, not only for college libraries, but for public and university libraries serving active choral ensembles. Bravo, Dr. Green! (CHOICE)

...an excellent resource for embarking on the study and performance of twentieth-century choral works in English. (Choral Journal)

There's much detailed information here for the scholarly conductor or note writer - text sources, editions, performance histories and 'performance issues,' bibliographies, and discographies. (SymphonyNOW)
