This essay is written in the form of exchanges between two choral conductors. Based on extensive documentation including scientific research on the voice, precise knowledge of music theory and musicological exploration, it transcribes a pedagogy based on both study and experience. In this way, the book can become a veritable guide to singing in a choir or conducting.
The text, supported by analyses of passages from the works, is embellished by evocations of the great Masters, to place the reader in a perspective from which he or she gains in-depth access to the fabulous world of sound and the feelings it arouses.
A humanist stance on the role of choral conductor is set out for the benefit of all.
