Past Repertoire

Choral music has a long tradition that stems back to the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance. It is no wonder, then, considering the breadth and wealth of exquisite choral literature available to choirs in the modern day, that programming for an ensemble like the Davidson College Chorale can be a delightful challenge. At Davidson, where great emphasis is placed upon academic rigor, intellectual integrity, and the pursuit of excellence, the focus for the Chorale is twofold: to provide students a well-rounded education in the great historic works from the choral repertoire of the past, and to introduce them to well-crafted contemporary works that are shaping the ever-evolving choral landscape of the future. Within those parameters, throughout four years of participation in the choral program at Davidson, the Chorale performs challenging repertoire that is artistically meritorious, scholarly, and historically relevant, while at the same time indulging in new and exciting repertoire that bridges the gap between the classical and popular genres through the performance and study of various multicultural and folk-type compositions.
