Some friends from university were in the college choir, it was amazing to hear them sing. I always wish that I had the ability to sing like they do, I was always jealous!

Choral music is beautiful, and gives me such a good feeling.

For the past 4 years I've been playing the piano with a College Choir for a local community college in my area. (I play Piano, Violin and Guitar) I really appreciate choral music, and it's great to know there are others!

I'm a total noob to all things classical but this sounds pretty damn fine.

Don't know if you are still around MoonlitSunshine but I am a vocalist myself and one of my friends sings in a choir and it takes a certain skill to be able to harmonize without the tenancy to "take over" or become too forward in the singing. I struggle with that for lack of experience singing in groups.

However, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sound of a multitude of voices blended together. I don't think there is anything quite like that .

fazstp I would have to say that is my favorite kind of music.... well, maybe not favorite, but in the top 4. When I started in music I always wanted to blend the Russian male Choir sound - much like your example - with western pop. Recently I have come across more artist's who do this and the sound is amazing!!!

Hi

I'm a massive fan of choral music, I agree in the respect that nothing, even orchestral playing, gives me more enjoyment than really rewarding work in a choral group.
I'd love to get into listening to more choral music, my favourite work so far is Gabriel Fauré's Requiem.
By the way I'm a Tenor

Since I figured out I could actually sing (required sixth grade musical), I was in the school choir. It wasn't until high school that I really started enjoying it. I've always had a feel for harmony so it was fun to contribute my voice to a group. Great memories...

As for listening, I really enjoy all sorts of choral music, and I really like a well executed integration of gregorian chant. Gives me goosebumps. I gotta check out some more Avro Part.

Renaissance was full of beautifully crafted polyphonic vocal music : Josquin des Prés, Thomas Tallis, Carlo Gesualdo (who was a murderer !), Orlando Lassus, Giovanni Palestrina, John Taverner, Tomas Luis de Victoria, Johannes Ockeghem.

Harmonia Mundi and Deutsche Harmonia Mundi have some fine interpretations of Renaissance vocal music. And also The Hilliard Ensemble.
