Summary A History of the Handel Choir of Baltimore (1935-2013): Music, Spread Thy Voice Around highlights the work of a not-for-profit choir that has weathered the vicissitudes of wars, civil unrest, and economic downturns that have closed all too many volunteer musical organizations. It provides an indication of the sorts of repertory such a group performs, discusses issues concerning fundraising, and provides liberal quotations from the local press concerning the group's important outreach to the greater Baltimore community. The choir, in existence more than seventy-five years, is a steadfast element of the city's and region's cultural landscape and this book will be a valuable resource to many disciplines in music studies
