Subject: Music for Choir & Solo Instrument
During the weeks leading up to the regional ACDA conventions we asked
Choralist members for help in compiling a list of favorite works for one
solo instrument and choir with or without keyboard. At the same time we
had contacted all the publishers we could find and asked for music that fit
our topic and used the Musica database to compile as comprhensive a list as
possible of these works.
Those listed as highly recommended are works of high artistic merit while
Those listed as recommended are works that are good but might best be used
in a specific situation, most often in a church setting.
