This second volume of ROMANTIK a cappella by the editors Michael Aschauer and Jan Schumacher, containing 147 sacred choral songs by more than 130 composers, male and female, from 31 European countries, is an outstanding collection of choral music for mixed voices from the “long nineteenth century”, the period from 1789 to 1914. Predominantly for four voices, the songs range in style from easy-to-sing sacred folk songs to complex motets. The great diversity of the contents of the book is reflected in, among other things, the fact that it contains not only choral works of all three of the major Christian churches, but also settings of psalms that were sung in the Jewish synagogues of the time. The book offers a rich and extensive repertoire for every occasion in the ecclesiastical year, for use in both religious services and concerts of sacred music, and is therefore an indispensable source of material for dedicated amateur choirs, chamber and concert choirs, and church and cantoral choirs.
This first volume of ROMANTIK a cappella marks the start of a joint project between Helbling and the European Choral Association (ECA). Its aim is to present, in this form, unique, high-quality, edited collections of 19th century secular and sacred choral music from all parts of Europe. For this initial volume, with secular songs for mixed voices, the two editors, Dr Michael Aschauer and Prof. Jan Schumacher have collected choral material from representative sources and from this they have made a careful selection. It includes over 125 choral pieces from more than 30 countries by over 100 composers.

Which singer would not like to see exactly what is happening in his or her body while singing? Instrumentalists, such as string players, pianists or guitarists, can observe their sound generation at any particular point in time. However, this is not readily possible for singers, since the crucial movements of the larynx and the diaphragm, as well as the tongue and the velum (soft palate), are hidden inside the body and not visible from outside.
