From the Inside Flap:

"Few texts so elegantly integrate technical conducting instruction with information on repertoire selection and programming, score study and analysis, choral style period overview, and the inclusion of a sample anthology of choral music for class assignments. It is one of the essential resources in choral instruction at our university." -- John W. Richmond, University of South Florida

"Rejoice, for the body of choral conducting literature has been enlarged and enriched . . . knowledge is presented in lucid terms, methodology made practical, murky complexities given clarity." -- Russell Mathis, ACDA Past President

". . . a wonderful resource for all choral educators. This text goes beyond the mere mechanics of choral conducting and deals with the concepts that go into the making of sound conductors of choral music and sensitive communication of the choral art." -- David R. Stutzenberger, The University of Tennessee,Knoxville

". . . this text genuinely reflects the expertise and the humanity of its authors . . . the repertoire, and the emphasis on musical communication make this brilliant text a must for choral music education." -- Doreen Rao, University of Toronto

"In content and format Decker has prepared a text for the choral conducting world to use for many years to come." -- Howard Swan, Occidental College
