This book’s distinction lies in its presentation of the often daunting subject of choral tuning and intonation in a precise and accessible way. It outlines the topic’s theoretical background and immediately ties the theory to carefully chosen and tailored musical examples, so that each tuning issue or challenge can readily be seen and understood. The musical examples are either drawn from existing musical pieces or from Kodály’s Let Us Sing Correctly, or specially created by Kardos himself. The book holds great benefit for choral conductors who want to build their knowledge of tuning along with a clear understanding of its practical implications in choral singing. It also presents guidance on how to identify the issues at play when a choir sounds out of tune, and provides useful solutions to intonation problems. As a passionate teacher himself, Kardos also puts a strong emphasis on the need for enjoyment in choral practice.
