Peter Phillips on how to conduct polyphony

On behalf of Sacred Music, the quarterly journal published by the Church Music Association of America, I'm very pleased to announce that the forthcoming Fall 2006 issue features an article by Peter Phillips, the founder and director of the Tallis Scholars, on the method of conducting polyphony.

This is an important essay, written especially for Sacred Music, that will assist many parish musicians in some of their most difficult tasks, such as choosing singers, managing balance and sound, and knowing when a piece is ready for liturgy. More here.
