About the Author

Donna M. Di Grazia is the David J. Baldwin Professor of Music and Choral Conductor at Pomona College in Claremont, California, and a recipient of the Wig Distinguished Professor Award for Excellence in Teaching.


"This book is a superb achievement. No other survey of the choral repertoire of the nineteenth century approaches it in breadth, or in the thoroughness of its documentation. No other book attempts to explore in such depth the choral culture of the nineteenth century - the era that established the chorus as we know it. This volume will likely serve as the central reference for the study of choral music of this period for the foreseeable future."--William Weinert, University of Rochester in Nineteenth Century Music Review

"Nineteenth-Century Choral Music provides conductors with a fantastic start: important socio-political contextualization, analyses of standard repertoire, ideas for new repertoire, and authoritative recent resources in endnotes and selected bibliographies. Clearly many of the twenty-five scholar authors, like Di Grazia, have sung, conducted, or played in performances of the music about which they have gracefully and authoritatively written. Without question, the immense pleasure and satisfaction gained from Di Grazia's wonderful resource is in its inclusive scope so beautifully balanced with insightful detail."--Melinda O'Neal, Dartmouth College in Choral Journal

"Written by 25 eminent music scholars, the essays offer new, enlightening insights into a variety of topics relating to a century of choral literature...Supplemented with music examples and bibliographies, this is an important, distinguished contribution to the literature on choral music. Summing Up: Essential."

- J. J. Leary-Warsaw, Birmingham-Southern College in CHOICE

"Nineteenth-Century Choral Music is a most welcome addition to the field of both choral literature and music making. The essays are engaging, thought provoking, and meticulously researched, and there is surely something for anyone with an interest in nineteenth century choral literature...Recommended."

--Erik W. Goldstrom, The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians
