Everyone knows Archibald Davison and the amazing changes he has made in musical education during the past thirty-five years. He has now outlined, with a wealth of diagrams, his method of choral conducting. He tells what knowledge a conductor should possess, his attitude toward the singers, the various types of choral organization and methods for rehearsing them, and the methods of coordinating the various factors that make up the choral enterprise. He lays special stress on the most important technical details in choral training which lead to effective singing. Even the layman will find this little volume an illuminating essay that will deepen his appreciation of choral concerts. The conductor, the singer, and the choir master will find it indispensable.
