This authoritative history of choral music begins with the ancient Hebrews and Greeks. Special attention is given to the contributions of development of the amateur choral group in Bach, Handel and Mendelssohn, and to England, Germany and the United States. The book covers the beginnings and development of chorus singing, and the development and history of choral forms. This title is cited and recommended by Books for College Libraries and the Catalogue of the Lamont Library, Harvard College. "[This is] a book for the amateur which will tell him something about the beginnings and the course of development of chorus singing; something about the origin of choirs, their constitution, and the nature of their activity at different periods; something about the history of the most important choral forms, particularly the Mystery and the Oratorio, about their essential characteristics, and about the first and other notable performances." - From the author's preface
