    The Choral Collection Beethoven (ed. Jan Schumacher) contains especially attractive arrangements of Beethoven's music from three centuries. Contents include the choral-symphonic repertoire in versions with piano accompaniment, some lesser-known unaccompanied works, and some seldom-performed works, such as pieces from his incidental music.

    During his lifetime Beethoven was so admired that contemporaries arranged his music – mainly the well-known instrumental works – for chorus. Some of these choral works were even performed at Beethoven's own funeral. Subsequent generations of composers have also immersed themselves in Beethoven's output.

    The Choral Collection Beethoven contains 41 secular and sacred choral movements in a wide range of styles. Editor Jan Schumacher has created an indispensable resource with the Beethoven Choral Collection, particularly for amateur choirs, but the edition is also suitable for vocal ensembles and chamber choirs. Guaranteed enjoyment of Beethoven's music well beyond the anniversary year.
