This wide-ranging contribution to the study of nationalism and the social history of music examines the relationship between choral societies and national mobilization.

By the second half of the nineteenth century, organized communal singing became a primary leisure activity that attracted all layers of society. Though strongly patriotic in tone, choral societies borrowed from each other and relied heavily on prominent German or French models. This volume is the first to address both the national and transnational significance of choral singing.
