Early music in amateur choirs?
Date: April 12, 2013
I am currently working on a syllabus for an upper level undergraduate music history course on the revival of early vocal music from 1900 to present. I would like to include a unit on early music in present-day amatuer choirs and also in choirs in educational settings (anything from primary to post-secondary). I am having trouble, though, finding readings that would be appropriate to assign to the class. I found one article that gets to the heart of the issue, but unfortunately it is in German (it's Christifried Brödel, “Aufführungspraxis alter Musik für Laienchöre,” Musik und Kirche 73, no. 2 (2003): 106–14). If any of you know of any good resources on this topic (in English, preferably), I would love to hear of them.
