This book is filled with exactly what it states… choral history. It is a lot of information, not a super easy read but a good college textbook for my Choral Literature class.
Not too deep but complete!

I did not read it all but I became very happy with the some pages I have read today (when I have received it). It is not too deep (35 pages for the Renaissance Choral Music), but there is not too many choral history guides (or I don’t know them), and this is quite good and takes under consideration many aspects and parameters of the music of each period (like Society, composers, sort of choirs, musical style and perfomance practice, related arts, references…). But I must tell something, WARNING: it is NOT A FACSIMIL, it is a good normal edition.

This book is being used as a text for a choral literature class. It is a great overview of the history of music and is easy to read, follow and understand. A great resource for anyone interested in the topic.
