horal music is a refined form of
community singing or 'Chorus' with a unique concept. Choral Music, today, means concerted
vocal music as distinct from solo vocal composition.
No matter how many voices sing a melody in
unison, it is a CHORUS song and not a CHOIR. Because, unlike the
chorus which presents a Melody the choir aims at the creation of
Harmony. By Melody is meant, an arrangement of single notes in a
musically expressive succession. Harmony adds a combination of simultaneous
musical notes to melody to form Chords. The idea is to create a special artistic effect, a
unique musical experience with added dimension to melody.
