Choral singing represents singing by a group of singers led by a conductor. Choral music can be sung with or without instrumental accompaniment. The construction of choral compositions can vary depending on the composer’s style. Therefore, every choral piece differs from one another according to the construction and its expressive elements. In this paper, we will focus on choral singing and choral compositions. The form of our work is the analysis of choral pieces based on some points of the musical expressive tools such as harmony, structure, texture, tempo and musical meter. We have used 16 choral songs by different authors and characters. It is a compilation of songs published in one book (2011, Skopje) entitled “Who sings, means no evil” (“Kush këndon, keq s’mendon”) Compilation of Choral Songs” by Bekim Ramadani, whose material we used for our study and our analysis. This book also contains audio material of the 16 choral songs. The choral songs summarized in a book by the author are largely based on the folk music culture of various local and foreign cultures and traditions, processed and stylized in different ways, depending on the style of the author. The purpose of our paper is to give importance to this genre of musical interpretation – the choral interpretation genre, to actualize the functioning of this form of musical structure since it has been neglected in recent years by cultural institutions and music professionals.
