Choral music is now undoubtedly the foremost genre of participatory music making, with more people singing in choirs than ever before. Written by a team of leading international practitioners and scholars, this Companion addresses the history of choral music, its emergence and growth worldwide and its professional practice. The volume sets out a historical survey of the genre and follows with a kaleidoscopic bird's eye view of choral music from all over the world. Chapters vividly portray the emergence and growth of choral music from its Quranic antecedents in West and Central Asia to the baroque churches of Latin America, representing its global diversity. Uniquely, the book includes a pedagogical section where several leading choral musicians write about the voice and the inner workings of a choir and give their professional insights into choral practice. This Companion will appeal to choral scholars, directors and performers alike.

Andr� de Quadros, as a conductor, scholar, music educator and human rights activist, has conducted and undertaken research in over forty countries. He is a professor of music at Boston University, where he also holds positions in African studies, Asian studies and Muslim studies. He is the conductor of the Manado State University Choir (Indonesia) and artistic director of Aswatuna, Arab Choral Initiative, editor of the series Music of Asia and the Pacific and Salamu Aleikum #x2013; Music of the Muslim World for Earthsongs, USA, and general editor of the Carmina Mundi series for Carus Verlag, Germany.
