Choral Singing. Histories and Practices

Editor

Summary, in English

Choral practice can be seen as a field of simultaneous (re)presentation,

(re)production and (re)creation. These three aspects and discourses interact

on both collective and individual levels. They bring to the fore questions

about how the collective voice represents societal development and change

at the same time as it is conceived as an individual source of

entertainment, relaxation or the experience of fine art. This anthology combines articles from a wide range of disciplines and

perspectives. It includes a selection of papers held at the

International Conference on the

Concepts and Practices of Choral Singing which was held in Lund, Sweden, in

October 2012. Thematically, these cover relevant choral topics from

the 19th century until today. This is usually regarded as the time scope

during which the secular choral practice of today has developed. However,

some written sources bear witness of choral practices that can be traced

back to the times of antique tragedy.
