The American Choral Review (ACR) is a biannual journal exploring choral repertoire and issues of performance practice pertaining to music of all periods, as well as commenting on recent scores, recordings, books, and performances. The ACR strives to make recent research more widely known to conductors, and to bring great as well as lesser-known repertoire to the attention of the choral community at large.
