During the past couple of decades, research into the acoustics of choir singing has uncovered numerous interesting effects that are of potential relevance to choral performance. Some concern voice production, others have to do with the acoustics of the stage and the auditorium, while still others are related to our sense of hearing. Many of them are rather subtle and, if taken in isolation, of minor importance. When the acoustical circumstances combine constructively, however, choral singing is certain to become easier; conversely, when they combine destructively, choral performance is likely to suffer. This chapter describes in detail some phenomena that are expected to be particularly interesting and useful to choral directors and singers who are curious about choir acoustics.
