NEW 2021

In preparing a score, it’s easy these days to access information instantaneously about the composer, the piece, and even chord analysis. But perhaps you are just looking for the “big picture.”

Years ago, long before the ease of computers, I would write out the basic elements of each choral work I planned to conduct. These would include form, medium, text, keys, tempo/meter, instrumentation, and my many comments.

My hope is that this document will be a useful resource for you. It includes—

  • Bach: Cantata 150
  • Bach: Magnificat in DM
  • Bruckner: Te Deum Laudamus
  • Palestrina: Missa Papae Marcelli
  • Stravinsky: Symphony of Psalms
  • Verdi: Requiem

I also included a bit about doing research in the olden days -- just for fun!
