The first truly comprehensive volume on the choral music of the twentieth century, covers the extraordinary range of music for vocal ensembles, including secular, sacred, and folk- and jazz-influenced works. Strimple's personal yet all-encompassing survey ranges from the early days of the century, when such nineteenth-century masters as Elgar and Saint-Saens were still writing their final works, to the very recent past, when composers as diverse as Tan Dun, Paul McCartney, Morten Lauridsen, and Arvo Part explored new directions.

The book's geographical scope is just as sweeping. Arranged by country or region, it includes not only European and American idioms but also less familiar ones from Africa and the Middle East, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Pacific Rim.

Strimple surveys, describes, and critiques worthwhile choral repertory of every style and level of complexity. He also provides a useful summary of trends in Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish sacred music, as well as an evaluation of repertory intended specifically for educational use.

Those seeking out our new choral repertory will find extensive list of works categorized by type of choral ensemble (mixed, children's, female, male) and accompaniment (a capella, piano, organ, other instruments, band, orchestra).
