The scope of choral music.

In the realm of music available to us today, choral music seems like a rather narrow field. Within that scope, sacred choral music is a tiny niche and yet there is so much diversity of styles within our art.

I certainly draw inspiration from this video, though I don't advocate that we try to replicate it.

On the other end of the spectrum of end of the choral music spectrum is this rather esoteric piece written by contemporary composer Libby Larsen for the San Fransisco Girls Chorus. It is challenging to say the least but inspiring and thrilling at the same time.
