According to The Choir and How to Direct it “There are three very important qualities that a good choral sound possesses. If we listen carefully to the sound of a choir that is singing well, we can discover the nature of these essential qualities. First, let us try to imagine the sound of such a choir: quiet, yet broad and resonant sounds roll over us evenly like waves. We are beguiled by the uniform, rich tone and the amazing blend of all the voices into a single sonority; not only are the voices of individual singers indistinguishable in this homogeneous sound, but individual sections are also merged into the whole; all is blended and balanced, so that a beautiful sonority results. The wholeness and stability of such a sound is striking. The choir with its many singers seems to function as a single organism.”
