Classical Notes

Choral Quiz

Filed under: Choral Music

Test your knowledge of choral music, composers, and terminology. While it is multiple choice — no short answers or essays here, although you may feel free to leave them in the comments — we doubt that this is an easy 'A'.

What fun! Thanks for making my morning my web buddies!

Very fun, but the best part is your scoring system. Ha! Right on. (I'll never tell what I got, though!)

That was fun! The only one that stumped me was the hunky new choral composer, and I guessed right on him! Please post more of these - it was a bright spot in our day!

Thanks for an enjoyable five minutes. I skipped the one about the young composer because I didn't recognize any of the names. Who is he? (I guess I need to spend more time listening to the choral stream.)

9 out of 9! And who knew Eric Whitacre was so dreamy?

I did as well as I knew I would, but I am one of the royal family of choral geeks.
Who was singing Randall Thompson's "Alleluia"?
My guess it was Concordia or St. Olaf.

Four out of five, and it was the composer that i guessed wong. Could not get any of the music to play.

This test was far too easy. Fun however.
