One way to prepare for the rigorous demands of choral singing is to begin the rehearsal with a warm-up round. 100 Warm-up Rounds for Choirs aims to concentrate on some of the elements of good singing, providing material that will settle the voices through controlled breathing, open throats, clear vowel sounds and expressive phrasing.
The rounds are based on easily memorable texts, with ranges that rarely exceed a tenth and in many cases stay withing the octave, making them suitable for choirs of similar voices (all-treble, or all-men voices) or mixed voices, SATB. All the rounds can be transposed to other keys.
Some of the material in this book has previously been published as Warm-up Rounds for Choirs and 50 More Warm-up Rounds for Choirs.
