Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Choral-Orchestral Repertoire: A Conductor's Guide offers an expansive compilation of choral orchestral works from 1600 to the present. Synthesizing Jonathan Green’s earlier six volumes on this repertoire, this edition updates and adds to the over 750 oratorios, cantatas, choral symphonies, masses, secular works for large and small ensembles, and numerous settings of liturgical and biblical texts for a wide variety of vocal and instrumental combinations. Each entry includes a brief biographical sketch of the composer, approximate duration, text sources, performing forces, currently available editions, and locations of manuscript materials, as well as descriptive commentary, discography, and bibliography. Unique to this edition are practitioner’s evaluations of the performance issues presented in each score. These include the range, tessitura, and nature of each solo role, and a determination of the difficulty of the choral and orchestral portions of each composition. There is also a description of the specific challenges, staffing, and rehearsal expectations related to the performance of each work. Choral-Orchestral Repertoire: A Conductor's Guide is an essential resource for conductors and students of conducting as they search for repertoire appropriate to their needs and the abilities of their ensembles.
