About Oxford difficulty descriptions
For each of our choral pieces, we provide information about ‘Difficulty’ levels to assist choral directors in understanding whether a piece is suitable for performance by their choir. The descriptive levels are characterized in the following ways:
Straightforward harmonies and rhythms; mostly homophonic with no large vocal ranges; usually with supportive accompaniment.
Mostly rhythmically straightforward; possible straightforward key changes; limited amounts of divisi in places.
More complex rhythms and counterpoint and/or harmonies; ranges may be broader; key and time changes and possible divisi throughout.
Often includes multiple key and time changes; demanding vocal lines; divisi sections; complex rhythms.
