The world loves to sing. From Barbershop Groups to Madrigal Choirs to Vocal Rock Bands, there are tens of thousands of vocal groups in America. The success of mainstream television programs such as "Glee" and "The Sing-Off" not only demonstrates the rising popularity of vocal music, it reflects how current trends inspire others to join in. Like singing itself, a cappella is a global phenomenon.List of Abbreviations
At the heart of every vocal group is the music it performs. This often means writing its own arrangements of popular or traditional songs. This book is the long-awaited definitive work on the subject, wide ranging both in its scope and in its target audience - which encompasses beginners, music students and community groups as well as professional and semiprofessional performers, vocal/instrumental songwriters, composers and producers - providing genre-specific insight on a cappella writing.
The tone of the book is instructive and informative, yet conversational: it is intended to stand alongside any academic publication while remaining interesting and fun. "A Cappella Arranging" is a great textbook - and a great read - for every vocal arranger, whether amateur or professional; every vocal music classroom; and any professional recording studio.
