In order to highlight choir, choir singing and choral work as fruitful research topics the network Choir in Focus was initiated in 2009 by Dr. Ursula Geisler and Dr. Karin Johansson at Körcentrum Syd in the south of Sweden. Although there are vast possibilities for cooperative and cross-disciplinary projects in this area such studies seemed to be lacking, and the intention was to create a meeting point for researchers from different traditions. Today, this international network provides a platform for discussing theoretical and methodological issues under the umbrella of common research interests related to choir. This publication is one of the results from the network's first meeting in November 2009, which drew together 15 participants from univerities and music academies in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany, France and the UK. The contributions in this volume illustrate how choir singing and choral life may be approached from differing disciplinary origins that vary from historical studies to studies of contemporary performance practice.
