Celebrate Black History Month in February

Honoring One Year In Print

The Oxford Book of Choral Music by Black Composers is a landmark collection of non-idiomatic compositions from the sixteenth century to the present day, providing a comprehensive introduction to an area of choral music that has been historically under-represented. This unique anthology seeks both to improve representation in the historical canon and to showcase the music of some of the best names in choral music today.

It includes 35 pieces for SATB choir, unaccompanied or with piano or organ, in a mixture of sacred and secular works, including anthems, choral art songs, madrigals, motets, and part-songs.

There are works from the Renaissance, Classical, and Romantic eras, in addition to the 20th and 21st centuries, featuring composers from a variety of nations, including Brazil, Canada, Portugal, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
