    Many choirs perform in one or many locations such as a church, opera house, or school hall. In some cases choirs join up to become one “mass” choir that performs for a special concert. In this case they provide a series of songs or musical works to celebrate and provide entertainment to others.

      I know about mass choirs. They are awesome in their way. Composer’s Choir is built in a way where it would be too expensive for us to perform, but if we did it might be best in a mass choir because then we would have audience. Right now very few people know about us, and there are no members to sell tickets, so I think our concert would have next to no audience. But who knows- we might perform at some point.

    A few composers developed a cappella music, especially Bruckner , whose masses and motets startlingly juxtapose Renaissance counterpoint with chromatic harmony. Mendelssohn and Brahms also wrote significant a cappella motets.

      Thanks for reading the blog nd taking a moment to comment. I love a cappella. IT’s hard for some people though, and I want to stretch myself as a composer and become more versatile so my next piece is for choir and organ. Unless that just fails and then back to a cappella it is. I think there is a shortage of good a cappella around. IT might be because it’s harder and not as profitable for publishers as easier material. I”m not sure about that though.

    As in other genres of music, choral music underwent a period of experimentation and development during the 20th century . While few well-known composers focused primarily on choral music, most significant composers of the early century produced some fine examples that have entered the repertoire.
