Our obligation as choral music educators is to expose our students to a wide
variety of quality music from the choral repertoire, past and present. We
also draw from both the western and world music heritages. A balanced
school year choral curriculum should include more than one kind of music
and text. Historically, 80% of the choral repertoire is sacred in nature, and
any balanced program should not ignore this marvelous heritage.
