Augsburg Chorale Book
compiled and edited by Zebulon M. Highben
This anthology of 29 chorale settings brings choral music based on the great tradition of Reformation chorale tunes to choirs of all sizes and abilities. Featuring historic settings by composers such as Bach, Buxtehude, Distler, and Mendelssohn, as well as fourteen new settings by some of the best contemporary composers, the Augsburg Chorale Book presents 500 years of choral music in one volume. Historic selections have been carefully edited to preserve the integrity of the original work. Voicing across the collection ranges from unison to SATB, while instrumentation variously includes organ, strings, winds, and a cappella arrangements—making the Augsburg Chorale Book readily accessible to a broad range of ensembles, conductors, and congregations.
