A large portion of a choral conductor's time is spent
on selecting repertoire. "Cindy's List" is an online anthology
which seeks to make that job easier by providing instant
access to over 200 masterworks of the thousands available
for immediate download on the Choral Public Domain Libray
There are three ways the scores can be sorted: by composer,
name of work, or genre. Two links to CPDL for each work
are provided: the first one links to an edition of the work,
the second link leads to the edition page for that work,
showing all available uploaded editions. Using this anthology,
a conductor can immediately bring up a score of the work
that is listed.
All of the works listed are appropriate for any high achieving
high school or college choral ensemble and would also be
useful for a sight-singing or choral reading seminar or
This choral anthology was compiled as part of Dr. Bauchspies'
disertation. Chapter 3 of the disertation--Choosing
the Right Edition: Editorial Principles for Available Masterworks
on CPDL, discusses editorial principles that will help guide those using the site to the best edition available.
