Cathedrals, Chapels, Organs, Choirs (Paperback)
With an insider's knowledge but an outsider's perspective Sarah MacDonald lifts the lid on a choral tradition which is admired worldwide but mysterious in its inner workings to most of those not involved in it. How do you train a liturgical choir-whether its members are children or young adults-to the highest possible standard? How do you choose the right music for them to sing? How do you get to be a member of one of these choirs? How do you organise a choir tour or a recording? These and many other questions are addressed, and the daily trials and tribulations of abusy choir director-who is also a fine and active organist-are entertainingly chronicled.
