The Choral Warm-Up: Accompanied Canons for Choirs

- GIA Publications
This addition to the successful Choral Warm-Up series provides one of the most important tools in teaching elements of choral intonation: canons. By singing canons, the ensemble can develop (often for the first time) listening skills that require "listening to someone other than yourself." These modal canons extend the listening even further by adding harmonically supportive and enriching accompaniments. Choir directors seeking to improve the musicianship, vocal skills and intonation of their singers will find these modal canons to be an outstanding addition to their library of warm-ups!
